Helen Ross Russell has written Ten-Minute Field Trips. A Teacher’s Guide to Using the Schoolgrounds for Environmental Studies to help teachers learn with their students and discover the advantages of using their own school ground for field trips. This book is available as a free download.
Since every school ground is different and since all field trips should be a part of classroom experiences, this book can only suggest possibilities that the teacher can select and adapt as a starting point.
Each subject is introduced with a page or two of background information on the general topic. Next, some related classroom activities are suggested as a reminder that field trips need an introduction and and a follow-up in the classroom. There is also a section on teacher preparation.
“WILD’ is for young children and directly relates to animals and habitats thereby making environments accessible.
