Field Trips For All

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Lunchables. All opinions are 100% mine.

Remember Field Trips when you were in school? When we were kids they were a day away from school, time for fun with your friends disguised as a school day. Of course now I realize they were a fortified school day disguised as a fun day with y friends, but they are fond memories note the less. Whether it was an elementary school trip to a farm or a trip to the art museum with high school Humanities class, I still remember the lessons I learned o those days more clearly than the every-day stuff in class. Te hands on, the adventure of field trips enhance the learning, they make the lessons more real.

It’s been proven that children learn better adding the tangible experiences on field trips, they engage them in ways that they are not n the classroom. Yet, it’s expected that by the end of this school year the number of schools dropping field trips from their budgets will increase 56%, over 30,000 schools. That’s a staggering figure of kids who will lose that part of their education.

Lunchables’ Project Potential has launched a new initiative called Field Trips For Allthat will give away 50 field 0trips to 1st to 8th grade classes nationwide. Anyone over age 6 can nominate a deserving classroom to win one of the fieldtrips from Lunchables.

Who would you nominate? Maybe your children’s school has already been hit with cuts or maybe the district you live in. It’s a hard choice to select a school to nominate for a prize that used to be a part of learning, but my hat is off to Lunchables for being awesome corporate citizens and doing this. Spread the word about this awesome contest and get your nominations in today!
