There are several off-site field trip options available for 4th grade classes. Some require bus transportation, but at least one option is ‘walkable’ from your school.
Nature In Your Neighborhood
This field trip consists of an exploration of a local park or green space that is walking distance from the school (no bus required!). During this field trip program, students will walk from the school to a local park or natural area, exploring the nature that they find all around them along the way. Each group will be guided by an experienced field trip leader, introduced to fun nature-based activities, and will discover opportunities to exercise their wonder and curiosity.”
Total time for each class: 90-minutes
EARTHQUAKE GEOLOGY FIELD TRIPS
Our 4th Grade Earthquake Geology Field Trips take place at the Los Trancos/Monte Bello Open Space Preserves. Trained EV docents guide students in small groups to explore signs of the forces that have helped to shape this land and discover the evidence that scientists used to make hypotheses about the moving earth. These off-site field trips are designed to support the Earthquake Geology classroom programs, but can also be booked as a stand-alone experience.
Total time for each field trip: 2-hours
