don't do all our learning in a classroom - Life is a field trip!
If you're an educator or homeschooler, consider organizing a
field trip that will inspire compassion.
Although there are many problems in the world, we believe all
children's educational materials and experiences should be, for
the most part, pleasant and solution-oriented. Therefore, if you
have an opportunity to schedule a field trip that has a negative
connotation, such as an animal control facility, it's a good
idea to follow it up with a look at some solutions, such as an
animal rescue organization. For homeschool groups (who have more
flexibility in who goes to various events) you may wish to offer
parents of especially young or sensitive children the option of
skipping the first part of the field trip and coming only to the
solution-oriented part afterward.
Below is a list of ideas for possible compassion-inspiring field
trips. If you're interested in starting a local chapter of
Compassionate Kids and organizing field trips in your area,
please let us know.
