Field Trip Report
FIELD TRIP or NATURE TRIP
A field trip or excursion is a journey by a group of people to a place away from their normal environments.
The purpose of the trip is usually observation for education, non-experimental research or to provide students with experiences outside their everyday activities, such as going camping with teachers and their classmates. The aim of this research is to observe the subject in its natural state and possibly collect samples. It is seen that more-advantaged children may have already experienced cultural institutions outside of school or college , and field trips provide a common ground with more-advantaged and less-advantaged students to have some of the same cultural experiences in the arts.
Field trips are most often done in 3 steps: preparation, activities and follow-up activity. Preparation applies to both the student and the teacher. Teachers often take the time to learn about the destination and the subject before the trip. Activities that happen on the field trips often include: lectures, tours, worksheets, videos and demonstrations. Follow-up activities are generally discussions that occur in the classroom once the field trip is completed.
In Western culture people first come across this method during school years when classes are taken on school trips to visit a geological or geographical feature of the landscape, for example. Much of the early research into the natural sciences was of this form. Charles Darwin is an important example of someone who has contributed to science through the use of field trips.
Popular field trip sites include zoos, nature centers, community agencies such as fire stations and hospitals, government agencies, local businesses, amusement parks, science museums, and factories. Field trips provide alternative educational opportunities for students and can benefit the community if they include some type of community service. Field trips also provide students the opportunity to take a break from their normal routine and experience more hands on learning. Places like zoos and nature centers often have an interactive displays that allow students to touch plants or animals.
“FIELD TRIP IS AN EDUCATIONAL PROCEDURE BY WHICH THE LEARNERS OBTAIN FIRST HAND INFORMATION BY OBSERVING PLACES,OBJECTS,PHENOMENA AND PROCESSES IN THEIR NATURAL SETTINGS “

• Real World Learning
As teachers, a field trip is one of the best tools that we can use to provide every student with real-world experiences. Whether that's a trip to the local grocery store, waterfront park, a library, a museum, a theater, a community garden or a restaurant, each experience that a student participates in contributes to their understanding of the world.
When students leave the classroom, they see the connections between what is happening at school and in the ‘real-world’.
Students are able to access tools and environments that are not available at school or campus. Our communities are rich learning laboratories. Field trips make it possible to take students to see an underwater ecosystem at an aquarium, participate in citizen science in a river, use high powered microscopes, see and touch historical artifacts in person and present on a public stage among hundreds of other things. Each experience solidifies learning and supports important academic concepts.
• Socio-emotional Growth
Students who go on field trips become more empathetic and tolerant. A study conducted by the University of Arkansas found that students that participate in a field trip to an art museum show increased empathy, tolerance and critical thinking skills. Studying art gives students a chance to think about a topic or theme from a different perspective.
• Academic Impact
Field based learning increases test scores.
THE HITECH CITY OF INDIA “
Hyderabad is the capital of Telangana and Andhra pradesh in Southern India, located on the banks of the Musi River and on the Deccan Plateau. Hyderabad and Secunderabad are "twin cities" near Hussain Sagar Lake (also known as Tank Bund in local parlance) but both cities have grown so much that now they have become one big metropolis. The city and district of Hyderabad are coterminous. Hyderabad district is entirely contained within the Ranga Reddy district of Telangana. Many of the suburbs of Hyderabad were recently merged into the city, now called Greater Hyderabad.
Its historic sites include Golconda Fort, a former diamond-trading center that was once the Qutb Shahi dynasty capital. The Charminar, a 16th-century mosque whose 4 arches support towering minarets,.world Largest film city etc..
This trip was one of the most beautiful days of my life….
I reached Hyderabad at 5pm.The journey was by train.and our first destination ,Snow world at 6.30pm .It was a different experience.Special dress to climb into it.I played in the snow and danced.
The next day I went to ramoji rao film city. The next journey was on their bus inside the film city.Saw many incredible views in there.Artificial Airport,Police station,Tajmahal,Railway station,Hospital etc...There was an extensive museum,line magic show,stunt show,Dance Show...It will take at least a week to see all the sights of Film City.
I later went to the Lumbini park.The main attraction is the laser show.The wonder of light.The entire history of hyderabad is shown on one screen.with a play park there.near Hussain sagar lake.
The next day I went to Birla mandir.Rare building carved in marble like the Taj mahal.The entire city of Hyderabad can be seen from this temple which has more than 200 steps.
Then we went to the salar jung museum.Sculptures and ancient swords, vessels, costumes and famous paintings were kept.
Then I went to Chaw Mahal.Surrounded by 4 palaces, the courtyard of the history of Hyderabad.From there we went to the mecca masjid . Then to Charminar.Could not get inside due to congestion.
The next day and the last day of the trip.I went to Golconda fort.also known as Golkonda is a fortified citadel and an early capital city of the Qutb Shahi dynasty (c. 1512–1687),Because of the vicinity of diamond mines, especially Kollur Mine, Golconda flourished as a trade centre of large diamonds, known as the Golconda Diamonds.
I said goodbye to Hyderabad at the end of the sights giving me unforgettable experiences, memories and many good days.
A field trip is an educational tool and practice, and like other tools and practices.field trip and excursions to cultural institutions have notable benefits. Students randomly assigned to receive a tour of an art museum experience improvements in their knowledge of and ability to think critically about display stronger historical empathy, develop higher tolerance and are more likely to visit such cultural institutions as art museums in the future. It first hand experiences to places of scientific importance. They arise from direct learning situations. They play the same role in the learning of science as do experiments and demonstrations.
Field trips and excursions allow the students to learn outside of the classroom. Many field trips and excursions combine educational content with team building activities, such as working together to clean a stream that has been polluted. Infact, it is often a good idea to go on an excursion early in the school year to help create a bond between the students. It is a way to bring the students closer together. A good field trip and excursion supplements the curriculum and it offers the opportunity to teach the students something new.A field trip and excursion can create a rewarding and exciting learning experience for a student.
