Walking Field Trips are an option for the “Stormwater in Your Community” lesson. IslandWood has scouted routes for these walks that take place very nearby the school, within about 3 blocks of the building. IslandWood staff will lead it for your class by request. It takes approximately 60 minutes, and includes:
Introduction in the classroom: What are we looking for today? What are the expectations for being in school outside?
Walk around neighborhood: What can we find that helps us understand what happens to stormwater around here?
Conclusion at school: What did you notice? What stormwater problems and solutions did we see in our community?
To sign up, please email Celina (firstname.lastname@example.org) to arrange a date and time. We will try to schedule all classes at your school on the same day.
Seattle Teachers: We have partially filled in a Field Trip Request form for your use. You can find it as well as related SPS procedures documents in the resources section on the Community Waters Schoology group.
