Welcome to the Toronto Star Classroom Connection
     Ontario Field Trip Guide
     BRINGING ONTARIO’S FIELD TRIPS TO YOU!
     Ontario has a wide range of exceptional venues perfect for educational field trips, allowing
     students to explore the arts, science, music, health and wellness, history, nature and much
     more. There are so many great ones, in fact, that it can be difficult for teachers to navigate the
     many options.
     This guide is designed to provide you with the necessary details to plan your field trips for the
     2018-19 school year. You’ll be sure to find a program that’s perfect for your class, their learning
     needs and your school’s budget.
     Field trips help bridge the gap between the classroom and hands-on learning, between theory
     and experience. They provide students with a stimulating, real-world experience that can make
     learning more meaningful and memorable. Field trips also give student’s opportunities they
     may otherwise never have, and they make learning fun!
     Enjoy this Ontario Field Trip Guide with our compliments. We hope you have a wonderful
     school year full of extraordinary learning experiences!
