Planning a foolproof field trip can be overwhelming, but this two page field trip checklist will help you to organize your thoughts and cause you to pay careful attention to field trip selection, pre-visit preparation, the trip itself as well as appropriate follow up and evaluation. It is divided into eight categories which include: 1) Planning the Trip, 2) Volunteers, 3) What to Do Before the Trip, 4) What to Include In a Permission Slip, 5) Items to Take on the Trip, 6) Procedures for Students, 7) Instructional Activities, and 8) What to do After the Trip. Simply place a check mark in one of the three columns as you plan – "Yes", "No, but Should Have", and "Not Needed".

Because good planning must precede all field trips, it will also help you to think through the critical details while not neglecting the key components that provide an educational and safe experience for both your students and yourself. After all, field trips expand children's learning through active hands-on experience, and they also increase student knowledge and understanding of a subject as well as add realism to the topic of study.
