April Field Trip

We have two field trips this month, one of the 22nd and one on the 28th. 

We need at least 3 more chaperones for the 22nd. Please take a moment to look at your schedule and see if you can join us for that day. 

 The parent chaperones need to have extreme self control because this particular trip will be challenging, both for the students and for the parent. 

Student teams will start at school where they will be given their first clue in the Amazing Race. Teams of four (and one adult) will be making their way around the city using only public transportation. Along the way they will need to complete tasks, find information, and work together while attempting to be the first team back to school. 

If you are adventurous, willing to stand back and watch the students figure things out while ensuring safety, and are available on the 22nd, please let me know right away! 

It's going to be great fun and one huge learning experience. 

This much fun can't be educational right? Wrong! Students will learn/practice: 
1. Using public transportation (MAX, bus, and street car)
2. Self reliance
3. Using maps
4. Reading charts and tables
5. Teamwork
6. Budgeting
7. Reading labels
8. Problem solving
9. Effective search terms
10. Questioning techniques
Current Chaperones:
Mr. Crittenden
Mrs. Gounder
