design a field trip for your class to learn more about some or all of the material covered in the course.
Objective: Design a field trip relating to the content learned and include a lesson plan, an assessment, and a written reflection.
Your goal for this assignment is to design a field trip for your class to learn more about some or all of the material covered in the course. You can focus on a small number of topics, or a large number of topics- it is completely up to you. This will need to be a real field trip with actual locations (You must identify the location, provide address, phone and cost). Local locations are the most likely scenario in terms of budget and convenience, so try to focus on areas around you now, or at least where you would like to teach in the future.
You will need to include a lesson plan for the field trip (a template is included for you at the top of our course page-use it!!), a brief post-trip assessment to measure what students learned on the field trip, and a written reflection of the field trip. Please include all of these assignments on the same single Word document and upload it to our Moodle course.

Problems you can foresee on the field trip and how you will correct/avoid them, etc. — anything relevant here.
How you can grow the field trip in the future (cost, transportation needs, other classes attending, etc. —anything relevant here).
