Reflection is a big part of the learning process. After students are done with a trip to the Refuge they are often so excited that they are very open to solidifying their learning through some wrap-up activities. There are a few suggestions in the Educator's Guide but feel free to create your own.
Refuge staff and volunteers also take time to reflect after each field trip as well as at the end of the season. It is very important to receive feedback from you so that these programs can continue to get better. Evaluations also help to encourage grant funders to support these programs.
Please fill out and return this Field Trip Evaluation Form* as soon as possible after your trip. Feedback from each teacher involved, as well as chaperons is very much welcome and needed.
*If you are requesting bus funding from the Friends, this evaluation will be required in order for you to receive that award.
