Going Out


This video lesson is designed for 6-12-year-old children. It helps to understand the importance of going out and its benefits in a child’s early development stages.

What does “Going Out” mean in a Montessori classroom?

The Montessori practice of “going out” begins at the Elementary level. The children of age group 6-12 years are curious and want to discover the world. Going out helps them to learn more about a topic of interest in a small group. The trip is planned and prepared by the children in connection with their class lesson.

Benefits of going out on an excursion

  1. It allows children to practice grace and courtesy, learning different ways to act in different social situations.
  2. It helps children develop resilience, courage, and independence in their social interactions.
  3. It teaches children about the interconnectedness of nature and the world around them.
  4. It allows children to apply classroom teaching in a real-world setting, boosting their confidence.
  5. It helps the child develop responsibility, research skills, manners, and cooperation.


Take the child out to show them real things instead of making objects representing ideas and closing them in cupboards. Watch the video to prepare them with basic and essential life skills with the associated activities.
