It is the time of year when schools are going on Field Trips. I used to look forward to going on field trips every year. The best one I ever went on was when our school went to visit King Tut’s exhibit in Dallas. It was at the Science Museum so there was plenty to do in addition to the exhibit, but I have always had a huge fascination for Egypt and history. Where have you gone with your school?
I was reading that some students get left behind because their parents can’t afford to send them on the field trip the school goes on. For schools that don’t charge the parents, they are eliminating field trips all together.
According to a 2009 report from The American Association of School Administrators, it’s estimated that over the course of the current school year, the number of school districts eliminating field trips will increase by 56 percent. That’s more than 30,000 schools.
That’s why Lunchables has created Project Potential. Project potential’s goal is to send kids on these field trips because it is in these hands on learning experiences where kids grow. Hands on experiences empower kids to reach their potential. They don’t want anyone to feel left out and are letting parents nominate the school of their choice, Field Trips For All. Just look at how much fun your kids could be having with Lunchables.
My husband and I watched this video together and he was dying to know where they were at. So I had to replay it so he could see that they were at the Columbia Memorial Space Center. The Columbia Memorial Space Center looks like a ton of fun and a great learning experience. As a parent of children that will be in school in a few years, I know that I want them to be able to go on field trips. There are so many interesting places in the state of Washington that I know they could learn from. If you want to find out more or nominate a school just visit Field Trips For All. 50 schools will be chosen to go on an exciting learning experience.
