Goal

We would like to take our students on field trips to enhance students learning in science related to learning objectives in our science classes. The grant would be used to cover all cost of the field trips so that every student would have an opportunity to experience learning in a different way. This years field trip will be to the Emerald Coast Zoo In Crestview Florida. 

 

What will be done with my students

Students will be given an assignment that is linked to the field trip location. Then they will travel to this location with the school to experience science first hand.
Example of Assignment:
Students will research animals and information that is relevant to their grade level standards. The students will then go to the zoo and see animals and apply their new knowledge to the animals in real life. After their trip to the zoo students will pair off to complete a project to demonstrate the knowledge they have gained. The classroom lessons will be taught during the third nine weeks and the trip would take place in January or February.

 

 

Benefits to my students

Excitement and hands on learning. Also, it is proven through research that students learn best when they are applying the knowledge learned and can find real world examples to tie to classroom learning. Last year was a huge success students experienced new things that they had not had a chance to prior and showed a great interest in learning during and after the trip.  

 

Budget Narrative

The cost for transportation is lower than expected because we have a staff member who has volunteered to drive the bus. We plan to take our students to experience Gulf Coast Zoo in Crestview, Florida. In addition, we would like to allow our students to have lunch from McDonalds as an extra behavioral reward. Any monies remaining, would be used to further the academic learning experiences for our students within the classroom.
