I'm not a huge fan unless it's a field trip to somewhere fun. Like the science center or the park. Here's a funny story. The year I graduated we went on a field trip to the art museum (which I liked because I love the art museum around here) and a bunch of people got lost. Haha. How one gets lost in an art museum is lost on me. :P So while the teacher was yelling at them some guy who'd escaped a detention center stashed his gun under a nearby car then tried to rob the art museum's gift shop. Needless to say the trip was cut short.. XD

we love field trips so much, our head teacher threatened us once that we are going to go to have the trip around the soccer field (Field trip, lol) instead of going to Subic Safari and Bataan (it's in the Philippines)

LOL, yeah. I'm so in love with Japan! If the field trip is a trip to Japan, then I couldn't care less if my class, heck my whole school tag along. Would still be fun IMO.

I like field trips :D Especially ones where only like 15 people go on them, because usually there's more things we're allowed to do. Like for math team we got to go to the mall and stuff and we're going to go on another field trip because we made it to state.

On your field trip are you going to be supervised all the time?

Most of the time, but that's not the point. I hate it because I have to spend a whole week with my class, restricted to my actions.

If you're supervised a lot it restricts your actions even more. I hate going certain places with my whole class, there are people that just ruin things :\

If I was going to go to China I think I'd rather go with my family or some friends too. Going with a big group of people would just be a bit hard to deal with because I like to go places all the time but if there was a big group I'm sure we'd end up waiting for other people a whole bunch.

If you're not having fun, it's misery. Misery loves company. Company breeds contempt. Contempt builds character. Something like that...

Speaking from the viewpoint of a field trip chaperone, a duty which I have fulfilled many times ( it's not that I don't trust my kid, its the others I worry about), we keep a mental list of the first people to kick overboard or leave dangling from the lifeboat in shark-infested waters just in case of an emergency situation. Nobody likes a whiner in the group when they are travelling. Are you the only one whining or just the loudest? A lot of people have put an effort to give you an opportunity to learn something. Give it a chance.

Camisado (author)caitlinsdad2009-04-03

Yeah, I'm the whiner, cuz I'm FORCED to go on this field trip. If they don't like a whiner, then they shouldn't force people who don't want to go to go. They can be mad at me if the field trip is OPTIONAL, cuz I'm not forced to go and if I whine, its my own fault, but no, the kids don't get a say.....Field trips are 100% mandatory. Friggin principal....
