What will I do to debrief students after I have attended the fieldtrip?

After we return from the fieldtrip I will debrief students by:

  • Having a class discussion about the fieldtrip. What did they like about it? Why? What didn't they like about it? Why? What did they learn from this fieldtrip?

  • Having the students write in their science journal about some of the different plants and animals that they observed. The students can draw some of the plants they observed as well.

  • Having students print out the pictures that were taken at the fieldtrip and create a collage.

  • Having students create a power point presentation about the fieldtrip. Students should include pictures in their presentation. The slides will be narrated by the students.

  1. I like your idea about creating a collage from the pictures they took. As a class they can even create separate collages portraying each of the different areas in the arboretum (e.g. woodlands, desert, etc.). This may help them to see the differences between each of the designated areas and the type of plants that live there.
