A vital part of learning is hands-on and experiential. This guide is designed to lead you and your students through educational experiences that will last a lifetime. There are hundreds of entrances into the wild world that surrounds us; don’t just wait for nature to come to you and your students. This guide contains all the information you need to plan an academic field trip, including checklists, maps, cost, and the programs and facilities available at each site. Detailed descriptions of 23 sites describe what to do in the classroom before your trip, and what to focus on once you get there, including possible themes from theScience Frameworkand key concepts. Thirty-five other sites are described in shorter detail. The guide also includes general field trip activities, and two indices to cross-reference habitats and geographical regions with the sites.
