Educational field trips (life labs)
Field trips are important for young adolescents still making connections between content and the real world.
Middle school is an opportunity for exploration and exposure. Students are changing, learning, and growing at an exponential rate. We need to provide our students with authentic experiences that allow them to explore the world around them “face to face.”
