As an educator, you know the value of visiting the sites of our country’s history: walking the Freedom Trail, touring the US Capitol, visiting the battlefields of Gettysburg. Bringing your students to these meaningful places enhances their educational experience and deepens their understanding of their classroom lessons. These historical attractions are the foundation of many class trip itineraries.
But on the motorcoach trip home, and in the school halls in the following days, you may be surprised at the elements of the trip that keep students talking. Here are some of their favorite experiences, as reported to us by group leaders:
- Eastern State Penitentiary: Touring this prison, revolutionary in its design at the time of its building, adds another dimension to a trip to Philadelphia.
- Bowling! Of the many evening activities incorporated into student trips, including DJ Dance Cruises, Broadway shows, and Ghost Tours, bowling parties receive top marks. They engage students with one another for fun and competition.
- Major League Baseball Park tours: Seeing the Green Monster at Fenway Park, even if you’re a Yankees fan, is memorable.
- “A Christmas Story House.” OK ….. we’ll admit that group leaders are reporting to us that this is one of their favorites in Cleveland.
We’re committed to designing a tour that engages your students and complements your classroom teaching: a tour that meets – and exceeds – your expectations. And a tour that will keep them talking!
