How do you feel about going on field trips? I can not be the ONLY one who really does not like them. I just feel like going on a field trip just for the sake of going is the worst torture ever. The responsibility of having to watch over my 24 kids anywhere other than my school grounds is enough to give me a MAJOR anxiety attack. There is always the issue of the bathroom, or strangers, or parents who can not come, or parents who are not asked to come that follow the bus, or the kid who gets sick on the bus, or the kids who wanders off.. They just really stress me out. I mean, to go on one to supplement the curriculum, for example if you study butterflies, then by all means so to a place to see real butterflies. Or if your curriculum includes Space, then go to a planeterium.. But just to go for the sake of saying - yeah we went on a trip?? Our lunch meeting was about field trips today, and this year i am out-numbered because one of the teachers is out on Maternity leave so I think we are going to go to see a play at the local college. just to say that we went. and just to give me an ulcer!
