The students of Suryadatta National School, went trekking on a mountain in Bavdhan, Pune.The students from Sr.kg to std.VIII were accompanied by their teachers. The location is close to the school. We started at 9 a.m. from the school. The children enjoyed climbing up the mountain. Soon they refreshed by eating their snacks up on the mountain. They came down the mountain taking each step carefully. It was indeed a great experience. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Students collected different types of rocks from the hill and very enthusiastically they carried the rocks with them to show other teachers in the school. It was amazing to see the energy of children had while climbing the hill as well as playing there and still after reaching the school they were ready to play on the ground. Real education is when you are with the nature. Watching different activities happening in the nature and thinking about the miracles of the nature make children more sensitive towards the nature. These types of field trips can take a variety of forms that meet a variety of needs and can enhance deep, active learning. Along with the engagement with concepts that is required by these experiences, the student bonding that occurs on field trips enhances the learning experience and creates a learning community as students continue onward in a discipline. Teaching in the field also gives instructors the opportunity to get to know their students in greater depth in terms of how the students see the world differently than the instructor. This insight into student world-views can help the instructor to better communicate the concepts of the course. From the collaborative learning atmosphere that results from the unique relationships developed outside the classroom, to the deep learning that occurs when students must put into practice “in the real world” what they have theorized about from behind a desk, field experiences are unmatched in their learning potential. Field experiences early in a student’s career can be formative and can inspire students to continue in a field. Student’s self-reported learning outcome of field trips has very important pedagogical impact
