A field trip is an extension of the learning that occurs in the regular curriculum. To that end, any field trip must directly represent the instructional achievement goals of the day-to-day instructional planning in the classroom, or of the social, emotional, behavioral, and cultural achievement goals of the classroom and school. To meet these learning objectives, it is important that the field trip is carefully planned, and that the field trip plan ensures that the learning occurs in a safe and well supervised environment.
