The End of the Fieldtrip

When the fieldtrip has come to an end and we enter back into the classroom the class will engage in a mini discussion.  Students will talk about their thoughts, reactions, and feelings about their trip to the Corona Del Mar Tidepools.  We will also discuss the mini handout and their noted observations. Students will then choose from one of the following as an assessment of their observations:  
  1. Create a poem of any style that incorporates important facts and/or the names of the animals of the tidepools.
  2. Write a short story that tells about life in the tidepools.
  3. Draw a picture of the tidepool and the animals that live there.

  1. Great idea to let the students choose one type of assessment. This way the students are not overwhelmed with work after the fieldtrip but the students still need to reflect back on the fieldtrip and what they learned.
