An excursion is usually a brief pleasure trip. It is an activity organized by the school during which students leave the school premises to engage in educational adventures. Schools are encouraged to adopt the practice of excursion because of its tendency to add reality to learning experiences which consequently enriches the courses of study and motivate both teachers and learners.
Furthermore, excursions give exciting educational experiences deeper than the regular school environment affords. It has been proven that visits to places like zoos, nature centers, community agencies (like fire stations and hospitals), government agencies, local business, and museums increase the chances of the learners retaining what is being taught in the classroom. Findings also reveal that children learn about different professions, ideas, and opportunities when they travel outside their own neighborhood which increases their desire to try new things owing to the interest it sparks in them.
