Field Trips For All
This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Lunchables. All opinions are 100% mine.
Lunchables is sponsoring a really cool program called Project Potential, with it’s first project being “Field Trips For All”. The goal is to empower kids with opportunities to help them reach their full potential by providing them with experiences they might not otherwise have. For instance…what kid would have the opportunity to secretly view alien life forms? Check out this video…my kids would love to attend a field trip like this.
I remember going on field trips as a child, and it was always a great experience. Here’s a fact for you…According to a 2009 report from The American Association of School Administrators, it’s estimated that over the course of the current school year, the number of school districts eliminating field trips will increase by 56 percent. That’s more than 30,000 schools! Kids deserve the opportunity to experience a way to learn outside of the classroom.
If you agree with me, that kids should have the occasional opportunity to learn outside the classroom while having fun, then go HERE to nominate a classroom! I nominated my daughter’s class because they are a wonderful group of kids and I think it would really help them understand their study on history if they had a little ‘hands on’ experience. It would be a great way for them to see and understand the way things actually were during different time periods rather than just reading about it.
