Field Trips take mega amounts of planning! Teachers have to connect the field trip to the curriculum. Make arrangements with the venue to accommodate the loads of students who will be taking over the facility. Scheduling transportation can be a nightmare.
Then chaperones are necessary to contain the chaos. Do these children need to eat and drink anything? Can’t forget that. Collecting money to pay for the field trip takes valuable class time.
It’s a massive undertaking to plan and execute a successful field trip experience. There is a worn out teacher through every step of the process.
How about a little help paying for that field trip? Yes, it will take a bit of work on the part of the teacher, but it will be worth it should you win a Target Field Trip Grant. Each grant is valued at $700!
Grab your grade level team, sit down and map out the trip. You have until 11:59pm CT on October 1, 2019 to submit your application for your K-12 class field trip.
