    • Learners will share and discuss their discoveries and remaining questions.  


    Post Visit:

    • Students will keep their Field Guides and incorporate them into their science notebooks.  

    • Learners can use the “Wonderings” section of each activity to conduct independent and group research activities back at campus or at home. 

    • Conservation strategies learned and discussed during the field trip can be applied by students at school, home or in their community. 


    Desired learning Outcomes:
