Abstract: The word excursion calls to the mind such ideas as adventure, pleasure, relaxation, and excitement. However, in this study the word means more than a pleasure trip; it is a learning trip. But it is a pleasant and exciting way of learning. Henry C. Atyeo says: The expression, "school excursion" is used to designate any kind of definitely organized trip with a primarily educational purpose, made by a group of pupils as a part of their regular school work. Any trip that grows out of the study of a subject, and is undertaken by a group of students for its instructional value, falls within the scope of the school excursion as defined above.1
