Valley Stream 24’s Robert W. Carbonaro kindergarten and first-grade students recently went on their very first field trip to Bellmore Theatre to experience live theatre. They watched Frog and Toad, learning the importance of being kind and forming friendships.
“Our kindergarten and first-grade students were thrilled to experience their first field trip and for many, it was their first time on a bus ride,” said principal Rosario Iacono.
Field trips benefit students academically and socially, noted school officials. It allows teachers and students to get out of the classroom and create shared experiences. For students, field trips provide authenticity to the learning experience not possible in a classroom setting.
