Research Materials Needed to Prepare for Fieldtrip

As mentioned before, the field trip to the Fullerton Arboretum can be used to learn about the different biomes and their environments. Even though students are learning about these biomes during science, it would be beneficial for them to access the following websites for additional information.

A list of vocabulary words can be compiled that will be used by the Arboretum staff during the tour. By going over this list before the field trip, you can ensure that the students will have the background knowledge about the topics they will come across at the outing. The Arboretum website can also be accessed before the trip to check out the various areas that the students would be visiting.
As a class you can discuss a list of questions that students will answer during their visit to the Arboretum. The students will record these questions in their field trip journals and fill in their answers during their trip.
