Don't be down on yourself. You are a first time teacher. Why do you think experienced teachers (usually) have their act together? Because they made all the mistakes already.

Experiential learning is great. It takes abstractions and puts them in the context of the real world. I can remember field trips and out-of-classrom experiences going back decades. It's hard to remember a single classroom lecture, because oftentimes there was no emotional hook on which to hang it.

Keep up the great work!
