1. Exploring the sights in your neighborhood can provide valuable learning
experiences and expand your teaching resources while adding realism to any
area of study. Every community is full of great places to visit. You can
maximize the potential of your locale by not overlooking the simple choices
close to home and focusing on the options readily available to you and the
children. Remember, the best trips are those that serve as extensions of
children’s play and interests.
