Synopses & Reviews
You don't have to go far to get science out of the classroom. An NSTA best-seller, this book is ideal for teachers in all school environments -- urban, suburban, or rural. Renowned educator Helen Ross Russell describes more than 200 short, close-to-home field trips that explore new dimensions of familiar spaces and objects. Brick walls, rock outcrops, lawns, broken pavement, weeds, and trees are all targets for exploration.
Each topic section (plants, animals, Earth science, etc.) includes pre-trip classroom activities, teacher preparation, and a list of trip possibilities. For urban areas, a special cross-referenced list of field trips for hard-topped school grounds is included.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 155-156) and index.
