C. What resource materials are available to assist my preparation, teaching?
The arboretum site is very helpful to prepare students for this trip: http://fullertonarboretum.org/home.php.
D. What will I do to debrief my students after I have attended the field trip?
After my class and I come back from the field trip, we will discuss about the type of plants that we saw. Also, I will ask students to think/pair share with their partners several things that stood out to them during the trip. Then, as a class, I will ask students to volunteer sharing what they found interesting or learn because of our trip. Then, the students will write an entry in their journal expressing why they think it is important to preserve plants and trees.
