Abstract

Field work consisting of trips and excursions out from the class room plays a prominent part in instruction in many of the science courses throughout our educational system. Almost all courses in general or natural science in the secondary schools have it as an attachment of greater or less rating. So also do the technical or applied science courses in colleges. The materials and features with which the various branches of science deal are widely scattered over the earth's surface. They cannot all be brought into the laboratory and dealt with indoors, nor adequately represented by illustrative materials of one sort or another. Photographs, lantern slides, models and the illustrations of textbooks serve some considerable purpose in this regard, but they fail to give an adequate conception of size, of texture and of space relationships. Thus from the very nature of the materials pertaining to a particular science it is only natural that field class work should have some part in the teaching of that science.
