So I'm really curious and wondered what schools around the world or by country did for field trips. It can be elementary, middle/junior high school, and/or high school. 

 

Being from Alberta, Canada... my school often had field trips to go skiing/snowboarding as well as skating/tobogganing (sledding) when I was younger. And there was sometimes the movie theatre. As for high school, the only field trip I ever had was to the zoo as part of my Anthropology class.

 

My favourite out of them all would be an overnight camping trip I did with my class.

 

And I know some don't live in such a climate, and thus why I was curious... what field trips did you usually go on or have been offered but didn't care to join?

Our excursions were pretty boring in my part of Australia. Went to Canberra in year 5, Sydney in year 6. They got a bit different in high school, usually just go to a relevant place for whatever subject. Went to a water treatment plant (Yeah, hold on to your hats, guys, we got crazy) for Chem in year 12. Favourite excursion was in year 10, though, for History we went to Sydney and visited the Holocaust museum, Great Synagogue and such.

Visited museums pretty much all the time, went skiing/snowboarding in high school during winter, ice skating at least once every winter, had a larger trip at the end of each year. We visited small islands off the coast of Estonia for an overnight stay or visited the Southern part of the country for a 2-3 day bus and camping trip, at the last year of Primary School (age 15-16, year 9) we went on a 4-day bicycle trip near our biggest lake.

In High School went for a bus trip to Berlin in 10th grade and at 12th grade after finishing we went to Bulgaria for a week to have a massive party. Although that trip was without teachers. I still consider it a field trip as it is a tradition in our school, almost all of the class went and the management changed the date of our school ending ceremony for it.

I went to school in a small town (1600 or 1700 people depending on which direction you approached from) until grade 9 when it was a slightly bigger town (~2900).

 

Sometime before grade 5 we went to my school's principal's emu farm. By grade 6 we had gone to the same orchard twice. In high school, the music class went to a different school and performed a few songs (one of the two trips I actually enjoyed in my time as a student). The music class also went to a "festival" ever year to see how we stacked up in Ontario (always well, but I never went on this one). Apart from my grade 8 grad trip, that's all I can think of.

 

And the grad trip was to Toronto, where we saw some musical thing, the Ontario Science Centre, the CN Tower and Medieval Times. This was, of course, the other trip I enjoyed.

We never really had field trips...in primary school (Age 4-11) we went to a few cultural areas nearby, such as castles.

Never really went on any trips in secondary school (12-18), there was maybe 2 excursions, but they weren't that far. Only way we could get out of school was with the Duke of Edinburgh scheme, and that was for the hiking/trekking part of the program.
The problem was I went an all-male school (~1000 students) so health and safety was a massive concern...was much easier just keeping us on the school grounds, despite everyone being taught how to be respectful and 'gentlemanly'...

I think I've missed out greatly on the water treatment facility tour :(. I'm guessing it was somewhat less exciting than the Magic School Bus version? Although the way they wrote that Wiki page does not do the book/TV show justice!

I've been on a field trip where I walked down the road like 5 minutes to a small park owned by the school to do insect sampling, but that's still school property..... Never been off of school grounds for a field trip.

“I had a feeling we weren’t coming back from this fight when it began.”

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”

“Mmmhmm.”
