Boston Ranked Among The Best Cities For Field Trips
There are a few days on the school calendar that students circle each year, as dates that are special for their class. Field trips to interesting places around the area are often a highlight of the year. Student Travel Planning Guide recently published the cities that are best for field trips. Boston was first on the list.
The overall field trip experience is filled with excitement for kids of all ages. It’s a day that is unique to just their group. They get to load up the bus on a non-commute hour, pack a special lunch, and head to an adventure at a place they may have never been to. And hey. it gets you out of school for the day!
For teachers, this is an opportunity to educate in a different way. The experience can allow students to absorb a lesson from a different perspective.
“Field trips are essential to any curriculum because of their unique ability to inspire students’ interest in the class material and to provide a sense of relatability that you simply can’t find in a textbook,” Student Travel Planning Guide explains.
Boston Field Trips
Popular field trip destinations in the Massachusetts state capital include an informative walk along the Freedom Trail, learning all about the Boston Tea Party in the Seaport area, or touring the Paul Revere House and the Bunker Hill Monument.
A unique component of Boston is that there are many different types of field trip options that are all within walking distance from each other in the city. For example, the infamous New England Aquarium is along the Boston Harbor. This is near many parks and the Boston Tea Party Museum.
Most New England area schools start in the coming weeks, and Boston has many great places to experience this year.
