HOW TO PLAN A FIELD TRIP

Plan field trips for the kids in your elementary classroom with these classroom management tips and fun activities from the Clutter Free Classroom. Teach each student the procedures, routines, strategies, and techniques to ensure an easy field trip.

Field trips can be so stressful, but they don't have to be. My first ever field trip was an absolute disaster! It began with me making over 20 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in my kitchen the night before because I didn't know teachers in my school district were supposed to order bagged lunches for each student and ended with me frantically trying to find a missing group at Sea World in Orlando (not a location I recommend taking for your first ever field trip as a brand new teacher). The good news is that over the years I have perfected the art of the field trip and have combined all of those tips for you into an easy to read guide. Read below to learn more!

This blog post will…

  • offer information about an easy to read guide for field trips
  • provide information about two supplemental resources for field trips
  • ease your stress surrounding field trips

Before We Begin...

I assume you are reading this because you are interested in improving your overall classroom management. I encourage you to grab this free resource:

Field Trips Guide and Supplements

It includes lots of printables for you to use when planning and prepping for the trip as well as lots of great activities for the kids to do before and after the trip to make it a purposeful event. It also includes lots of fun printables to use on the bus to keep the kids engaged...the chaperones and bus driver will thank you.
