Field trips are a way of enhancing classroom learning by making real world connections. The trips give students the opportunity to observe a particular environment that enables first-hand experience of what they are learning. In addition, students achieve a higher level of critical thinking when they evaluate their own learning compared with what they get exposed to, and they are able to modify their knowledge based on their personal experiences. Field trips also offer students and teachers the opportunity to interact outside the classroom, thus enhancing their bonding with each other and improving their social and life skills.
The students of Grade 1 and 2 were taken to HAL Aerospace Museum India’s first aerospace museum located at Hindustan Aeronautics Limited premises on 29th August , 2018. The museum houses displays of various aircraft and helicopters, Aircraft engine models, Flight simulators, a mock Air Traffic Control Tower and exhibits of Indian aviation history.
The tiny tots were excited to see various models of planes. The museum has definitely created curiosity to learn more about the planes. The audio visual shown in the museum was very good and self-explanatory for the children. The overall experience was entertaining for the children.
The trip proved to create excitement among the children. They were enthralled to share their experiences. It was a good learning experience.
Thanks to the ground staff of HAL Museum for their support!
