Students love taking field trips, but the time and paperwork required can deter many teachers from taking their students on these trips. To allow the students to understand the many factors that must be considered and to have a say in the process, I created a field trip proposal project. The students work in teams to prepare PowerPoints that sell their ideas for a class trip. A vote is then held for which trip should actually be taken. The teacher may wish to have several classes go on the field trip together, and the teacher may wish to remove from consideration proposals that are totally unfeasible or limit the number of voting choices to the top three proposals. To give the students an idea of what their PowerPoints should include, I prepared this example PowerPoint. The table of contents in the PowerPoint is a list of what the students need to include in their PowerPoints.
