We had a whale of a time bone collecting in yesterday’s episode. Experiences like this transform ordinary fishing trips into lifetime memories. When I tell the story of Cedros Island in 20 years, I probably won’t remember a single fish I caught, but I’ll definitely tell of pickin bones off this rocky beach.
This episode has it all; link in bio.

The 2nd episode of #FieldTrips: Mexico is now live! We’re kayak fishing for yellowtail around Cedros Island, and while the bite is on fire, the incredible wildlife encounters threaten to steal the show. Oh, and we collect a boatload of whale bones off a remote beach. Link in bio. #fieldtrips@fishvillagram@cedroskayakfishing@anglrlabs
scheduling fall field trips? I’ve used this management trick since I first started teaching. it’s simple and it’s super effective-all you need are hair bands! the best part is that it’s SO easy to differentiate for students that struggle with behavior or even from class to class 🙌🏼 this will piggyback on the behavior management plan that you already have in place in your classroom. if you don’t have one in place, don’t worry! you can still use this!
before we leave for the field trip, we talk about behavior expectations. I then introduce the hair bands. I tell students that each of them will start the day with a band (you can give everyone two depending on how your class usually behaves, how long the field trip is, etc.). if they make good choices they get to keep the band and they could earn another one! if they don’t make good choices, they can lose the band. I also tell them that playing with the band or taking it off their wrist will also cause them to lose the band. I walk around with extra bands in my pocket or bag to hand out throughout the trip.
when we return, I collect the bands and they get their reward! this can vary depending on your behavior system in the classroom, whether that’s moving clips, earning punches (which is what I do), earning brag tags, etc. regardless of your system, each band is a reward. in my class, for each band they have they get a punch, or for each band they get two punches, depending on how much motivation I think they need. if you don’t have a clip chart or punch cards or brag tags, you could reward them with free time. more bands=more free time. you could also have the bands equate to a whole class reward-set a goal for the number of bands the whole class earns while on the trip.
for students that struggle with behavior, I slip them an extra band or two before we leave to give them more of a reason to make good choices.
I love that this system provides students with accountability that is tangible! if you try this out, let me know! I’d love to hear how it went!
a coworker of mine uses this daily for a student with behavior challenges! it can be used anywhere!
what are your field trip behavior tips?

Don’t let the snow fool you, spring has come to Glacier! The promise of warmer weather has stirred some of our wildlife and allowed migratory songbirds like the Robin and Varied Thrush to return. However, some of our residents have stayed active all winter long, our Education Team!
Despite facing one of the coldest winters on record in the Flathead Valley, local students braved sub-zero temperatures to explore the park all season long. Armed with warm layers, students from 1st to 12th grade left their classrooms behind for the day to experience a Glacier winter firsthand. Outfitted with snowshoes, students examined the formation of snow, learned about the strategies plants and animals use to survive the harsh conditions, and studied the quality of our snowpack like snow scientists. ❄️
The snow may be melting, yet winter will leave a lasting impression. Both on life here as it emerges from under its snowy blanket, and on those who choose to visit during winter. While it's usually quiet, often cold, and occasionally inaccessible, Glacier in the winter is always an experience to remember!

As we say goodbye to harvest we wanted to say a quick thank you to all the schools, teachers, parents, groups, and visitors who came and experienced our Educational Farm Tours. We loved teaching and sharing all about what goes on during each season, the importance of the bees, touring the packing and cider line, and of course, picking apples! It was a stellar year despite a few rainy days here and there. If you didn’t make it on the calendar this year keep us in mind for field trips next year starting in September!🍎🍏🐝🌻🚜
Following the #GIRLZRTW career summit last week, participants had the chance to go on field trips to various workplaces around Toronto! The first field trip in the Business and STEM sector, was at the Facebook Canada Offcies. Girls received a tour of the space and heard from women who work there. It was a great opportunity for girls who were interested in this field! Also, we were joined by @Girlzftw’s co-founder, @nicolandreap
