The eighth grade is an exciting year for students. This is the last stop before high school, and the chance to absorb as much information as possible before being pushed into those critical last 4 years. It is also a year full of exciting activities and field trips. Read on for a few ideas for eighth grade field trips. These ideas might even help you come up with some of your own.
If you live near an amusement park or water park, these are great options for field trips. They are fun and engaging; they are great incentives for good grades and good behavior; and they give something for students to look forward to.
A Major City
A major city is another awesome field trip idea. Washington, D.C., St. Louis, Los Angeles--the possibilities are only limited by your budget and group fund raising abilities.
Visit a college with your eighth grade class. Visit the dorms, the classes, and maybe even a sporting event. This can make any student college-bound if he is not already.
