Taking it outside the classroom, super school tours!

February 7, 2019

Calling all teachers!

Looking for new ways to teach your class? Need some innovative new material to keep them engaged? Have you considered a school tour?
We have picked four educational benefits of school tours to consider.

Support classroom material

School tours are an innovative way to spark your students’ attention. Reinforcing the curriculum and allowing the course material to come to life. If you have been teaching the importance of sports and exercise, there’s no better way to enforce this than get outside, play sports and exercise! Going to a museum can make a history lesson come to life; there’s nothing like seeing a sycamore leaf when you have been hum-drumming about deciduous versus evergreen trees all year.

Encourages students to Learn

Getting away from the desk is always a good thing. By being outside the classroom you are opening up children’s minds to new ways of learning. Instead of reciting science formulas and maths theorems, pupils engage in the world around them. Take advantage of the informal learning situation and ignite passion in those who learn by ‘doing’.

Try out new activities

Mastering some new skills is excellent for children’s self-esteem. Trying out new activities broadens their minds. A boy that never considered orienteering might find he likes it, a girl who always considered golf an old folks sport may find she’s a dab hand at crazy golf.

Happy memories

When in a new environment, the pupils will need to work as a team with other classmates outside of their clique. Not only that, but they make lifelong memories among peers, which is undoubtedly a fun learning experience in itself.

CEO of Virgin Group, Richard Branson once said: “the best way of learning about anything is by doing”, school tours reinforce classroom information, encourage students to learn, encourages experimentation with new activities, and generate life-long memories with friends.
