6. Gifted and Talented Unit - Field Trip Design Project
Students work to research and design a field trip of their choice! The unit workbook provides an explanation of the things that need to be considered when designing a field trip. The workbook is then broken into segments based on these topics: Distance/Location, Academic Connection, Policies/Chaperones, Budget/Cost, Date of Trip, Food, Timing, Fun Elements, Itinerary and Presentation. The culminating activity of the mini-unit is for students to design a presentation to persuade the "Board of Education" that they have planned an effective and meaningful field trip with an academic connection.
These units have proved to be very successful with my 3-6 gifted and talented enrichment class. They are also designed for student independence (with limited teacher guidance) for differentiation for gifted students or early finishers within the heterogeneously grouped classroom.
