INTRODUCTION

Field trips are designed to make us aware of the things going on in our nearby environment and its impact on flora and fauna.How the environment is taken care by the localites and what measures have been taken to use the natural resources judiciously and wisely... We were taken on various field trips from our college as a part of our curriculum for learning experience and awareness. Even though we read a lot of theory about environment and the various issues related to it, we can never really understand the true nature of these problems unless we look at it for ourselves. And what better way than going on such educational, informative and thought provoking field trips where we can actually see the changes happening in the environment ourselves. These field trips were definitely an eye opener..

MANNU PALLA LAKE BRIEF SUMMARY ABOUT THE LAKE: Situated amidst the newly-built Heritage Village, Dr TMA Pai planetarium, a church and a temple, there is a lake in Manipal popularly known as MANIPAL LAKE or MANNU PALLA LAKE.
GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION: Located 4 kms from the centre of udipi and about 2 kms from M.I.T . with a circumference of 2.4 kms and 60 acres.

MANNA PULLA LAKE-THE LAKE FORMED BY DIGGING SOIL.
Around 1960, tile factories were established in Manipal and nearby regions. As the soil of this area around Manipal Lake had lots of clay at that time, it was continually removed from the lake region to prepare tiles. Gradually this resulted in the formation of a large pond where rain water would get collected. Later it took the shape of a lake. So a man-made wonder and a boon for the localites.

    In Year 10 I spent a week on work experience at my local National Trust estate of Godolphin House, shadowing the warden there. Here, I learned a great deal about environmental conservation and the importance of maintaining natural habitats in our local area. This helped me understand environmental geography at a local scale and that while issues such as climate change and global warming are massive problems that have hundreds of scientists and geographers around the world who are dedicated to solving them, what happens at a smaller scale can also have an effect on the bigger picture. During my work experience week, we also looked at the effect of tourism on the local coastline. This involved balancing the economic benefits of tourism with the continuing prosperity of the ecosystem and ensuring that it takes place in a sustainable way. We patrolled a section of the coastline, looking for signs of damage and disruption such as cairns or erosion to the path. I found the week very valuable as it contributed further to my education as a geographer, helping me to understand the efforts that are put into conserving local ecosystems.…

    Schools often debate about whether or not field trips are beneficial and worth the cost. The discussion goes between physical cost and the academic benefits for the students. As school budgets get tighter the amount of field trips taken within the school year gets cut and teachers have to raise the money or ask families to pay for the trip. Many schools always have required or are currently requiring that field trips provide an educational benefit before they are approved, yet the educational benefit does not always mean approval because of cost. Field trips also mean extra work for educators, the debate is whether the time put into the field trip is beneficial to the entire school community. Because of the economy and the extra work many think that field trips are not important enough to take, add in safety issues and some believe field trips should not happen. The benefits can far out way the costs if one examines the field trip experience from many different perspectives. The perspectives of the students, the teachers, and the parent chaperones should be thought of before judging if field trip opportunities benefit the school communities and the students.…
