Field trips are a key component of school instruction. They broaden the educational experience and make a subject more relevant and tangible for students. A field trip should enrich and expand curriculum, strengthen learning skills and increase understanding and enthusiasm back in the classroom. In our "Learning Tools" section we share resources for teachers, chaperones, camp counselors and group leaders and tour operators for getting the most out of your Watermark student trip experience. We strive to make every single field trip successful from start to finish...including time spent in the classroom preparing in advance and time spent after reviewing the trip!
In this section educators will find how our field trips directly connect to your curriculum, classroom activities to prepare your students for the trip, a planning checklist and information on the value of field trips. Chaperones will find our tips and suggestions for being a helpful and successful chaperone. Counselors and group leaders will discover our suggestions on best times and activities for student travel and the different youth groups we regularly work with. For Tour Operators, we share our current Special Events schedule and tour operator policies. As you utilize this section, please tell us how else we can better prepare you and your students for their unforgettable journey with Watermark.
