Field Trips

‘Revolutionary’ learning experience

The Harbor Defense Museum at Fort Hamilton, with its collections of weaponry, uniforms and memorabilia from the American Revolution to World War II, is an interesting destination for a class trip.

All fired up!

Staten Island 2nd-graders learn about fire safety and about the history of firefighting during a class trip to the New York City Fire Museum in SoHo.

NYC is your classroom

Think about expanding your teaching beyond the walls of your classroom with a field trip. Here are some tips to help you plan a trip.

Leaving no stone unturned at Green-Wood

A tour about pollinators and another that focuses on architecture are just two of the many educational tours that can serve as class trips at The Green-Wood Cemetery, a 478-acre National Historic Landmark chartered in 1838 in western Brooklyn.

Virtual field trips offer unique experiences

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the end of the school year was a popular time for class trips. This year, you don’t have to completely forgo those experiences; you and your students can embark on virtual field trips instead.

Taking flight

Fourth-graders have the chance to pretend to be pilots at LaGuardia Airport and much more on a field trip to the New York City Center for Space Science Education on Manhattan's Lower East Side.
