Reflection: Parent Communication Forming an Argument - Section 4: Landing (Closing)


It is important to me that I give families the tools they need to continue our learning experiences at home.  Also, I work at a very large school, and we have to limit the number of chaperones that go on field trips.  

For this unit, I contacted a local nature center that conducts birding field trips.  I chose to schedule an outing on a weekend, and bypass the red tape of field trips by having parents provide transportation and supervision.  In this way, parents (and siblings) were all welcome to share our learning experience!

Check out these photos from our field trip!
