Attached is a simple reflection worksheet I have students fill out after attending a field trip or after leaving school to attend a special performance elsewhere. I find this helps students find the value of the outing and when it is sent home, it is a communication tool to parents. Often our PTA funds special outings, so this is a way to let them know your students gained from the field trip and valued the experience.
This year, my students went to hear astronaut Scott Kelly speak locally. He shared facts and information about his experience aboard the International Space Station. He also spoke to the students about working hard and realizing your dreams. I wanted students to reflect on this message, so I created this worksheet. I believe it can be adapted to almost any field trip or performance.
