Student Travel Journal Entries While Traveling with Appleseed Expeditions
Many high school students that travel on student school tours do not embrace the opportunity to record journal entries because they do not know how. A journal is an open book that will house any memories or special, day-to-day experiences travels will encounter when traveling domestically or internationally. The trip conductors of Appleseed Expeditions will encourage students to keep paper journals as opposed to online journals. This way a student traveler is able to grasp the emotion involved in traveling through hand-written entries and personalized doodles.
Recording journal entries while traveling is a keen way to add sentiment to any educational school trip. These entries can be shared among friends and family, if the student traveler wishes to engage with others on why the trip was special to them and what experiences will forever stick in their memories. Students may pick up on unique traditions, customs, recipes or daily activities of another culture or society, and recording it into a student journal is an ideal way of preserving the experience and guidelines that may accompany it.
For each student travel trip, the Appleseed Expeditions crew encourages teacher leaders to prepare their student travelers with a new, fresh journal to record their ideas, experiences and any other memorable activity. To get the most out of any student travel journal, student travelers must keep detailed, dated entries that are a chronological review of what happened throughout the time traveling domestically or internationally. If students find it difficult to find time to record a journal entry, Appleseed Expeditions suggests that teacher leaders dedicate time at the end of every evening for students to jot down their daily activities and experiences.
