Students may not have the necessary data or the sufficient background to obtain the maximum learning from such experience. 3.Transportation is another problem if public conveniences are used Another limitation is the size of the group. If it is too large for the effective observation it must be divided in to smaller sections Organization and procedure for field trip The first essential requisite to any successful field trip is well thought out plan The field trip should be a carefully thought out and planned education procedure, otherwise time will be wasted and little value realized.
