What Was Your Favorite Field Trip?
When I was in high school (back then in India for most schools, high school started ended at the 10th standard or grade and you did your 11th & 12th in a different institute, usually a college), they took us for a couple of school trips. I remember going to the Kerala History Museum and also to the Modern Bread factory.
We were to both trips during the 8th grade and I remember them kinda vividly. Despite all these years that have passed since then. I remember learning a lot of things at the museum and seeing the statues and art work about our state. At the end of the tour we were given an orange drink and biscuits – which we 13 years old kids were only to eager to devour as we were quite tired and famished by that time.
The Modern Bread factory is where the majority of bread and buns for the state is made. It was quite near the school and the museum too. We went there in the same year and it was fun to wear a hair net for the first time and see how they make bread on a massive scale. And ofcourse at the end of the tour, we were given plenty of samples to take home.
