I WON the Target Field Trip Grant!!
I applied back in September and played the waiting game until late December. Shortly after I got a check in the mail. Then I waited for Board of Education approval this month. BAM! We were going on a field trip to the Corning Museum of Glass. This is my first field trip. I am scared, nervous and incredibly excited to take my students on this trip. After discussions with my principal we decided to take 40 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students who completed a persuasive essay on why they would be an excellent representative of our school. Students also have to take photos and videos while there and present to other students a virtual trip upon their return.
You can apply for your own Target Field Trip Grant each year between August 1-September 30.
Have you been on field trips before? Any pointers? Really I could use them!
