Backyard Geography Field Trips

March 13 @ 7:00 pm EDT - 8:00 pm EDT


Getting permission for off campus field trips can be a hassle. Avoid liability, cost, and transportation issues by using your own campus setting for backyard field trips. Show students geographic concepts firsthand – even on the most urban of campuses! Receive pointers for connecting physical, cultural, and locational features that you may have missed. The last ten minutes of the session will be devoted to the group sharing what campus locations they use to discuss geography concepts.
