Field Experiences

Field Experiences

Immanuel Lutheran School is blessed to be located in near unique local learning oppportunities

and one of the largest cities in America with resources that promote and help define

the learning experiences of our students. Each grade level has field experiences that are

designed to promote inquiry in our students and discover their God given passions.



For students to gain the greatest benefit, field education is thoughtfully chosen and relates to standards, curriculum, and the students’ interests. Our teachers use best practices by introducing a field education experience in advance and providing opportunities for the students to apply new concepts and information in the days after the experience.


On the day of the event, teachers actively engage the students by discussing the context and their observations, and by encouraging the children to explore, question, and think critically about their experience. The field experience is carried into the classroom as the teacher integrates it into lessons.
