Bringing life to historical sites
Visiting a historical site makes the text books come alive. Studying suddenly has so much more of a reality aspect to it. Everyone has heard about the pyramids in Egypt. The history books always make a mention of the Israelite slaves that were used to build the pyramids as tombs for the Pharaohs. Only when you actually visit the pyramids do you realize the grandeur these huge structures posses.
Some of those rocks used to build the pyramids are so huge that it makes you wonder how the slaves ever managed to get them one over the other. This part of history will remain embedded forever in the minds of all those who visit the place. This is one reason that we organize school trips to places with educational value.
Exposure to the culture
Whenever you visit a place you are exposed to the people and their culture. You get to see first hand the kind of food they eat and their lifestyle as a whole. It is amazing how a day in a place can teach you so much more than reading so many books. For our international school tours we always try and arrange for the students to attend a cultural show and taste the local food. Some students are more adventurous than others when it comes to food and trying new cuisines. None the less the experience is worthwhile.
A trip into the country side and seeing the village life at close quarters is something that needs to be experienced personally. Each person takes back something different. Being in a place teaches you things that words cannot express but the mind comprehends. .
A comprehensive geographical understanding
It is amazing what the mind comprehends about a place by just being physically present. When we study text books we end up with preconceived notions. Egypt is a very hot country. When you visit the place it allows you to understand just how hot it can get or how pleasant the weather can be at times. Travelling around a country makes you aware of what the terrain looks like. Students perceptions are not limited to text book information but they get a clear understanding of the actual facts.
Fun and sightseeing
While most of the sightseeing is educational based we do try and include fun activities where the students have a chance to enjoy themselves. Depending on the location there could be opportunity for adventure activity or game parks. A school trip should also be fun along with learning. Children need to be able to enjoy being young and and indulging in childish activities..
