The teachers usually are trained at outdoor class explanations which are well taken by children.

A supermarket mall trip is very exciting for them. The arrangement is made with an event company or directly with the supermarket to allow them to partake in such an event. Children are made aware of chip packs, other edible items and the colors and packaging fascinate them. They are curious and in awe of the experience and discipline are well followed in counting them back or alighting from the bus. The simple instructions given by the teacher also promotes self development in them.

The key idea is to let them participate and know about other events along with helping them apply their interactive skills when they go outdoors. It is surely a pleasure to see them happy when they are back and they look forward for a narration the next day. Field trips build their confidence, social skills and improve their awareness.
