What this Web Page is all about


This web page was developed by teachers looking to make it possible for others plan field trips more efficiently by using the vast amount of information available on the World Wide Web. Although this trip planning guide is specific for the northeastern Ohio area we have provided links that should make the page adaptable to any site you choose.

Value of Field Trips

Field trips enable teachers to expand children's learning beyond the walls of the classroom into the vast community outside. They provide children with experiences that cannot be duplicated in the school but are nonetheless an integral part of school instruction. Perhaps a field trip can best be described as a living laboratory in which learning is acquired through active hands-on experience with the rich resources of the global community.

The following web pages have been developed by the researchers and developers at Kent State University under the direction of Dr. Harold Johnson and his able assistants.
