SELT Field Trip

Field trips can be focused on:

Curriculum/Standards (all grade levels & content areas)

We are confident that we can help you evaluate a diverse array of standards, from any content area, with some intentional & creative- thinking. Nature-based learning is for everyone, in every content area, and the dynamic experiences can be looked at through a multitude of lenses. Example: (Literacy) Reading/Writing Standards: sit spot journaling with prompt; using indexes, table of contents, and informational text features to research an organism; reflection after experiences; nature-related topics from experiences on the school’s land for argumentative pieces; imaginative narratives of ecological relationships & events using story maps, tracking & inquiry.

Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) & Team-Building

A combination of Curriculum & SEL / Team-Building
