Virtual Field Trips

The Guadalupe River Park Conservancy is proud to share that we are offering safely socially distanced Virtual Field Trips! We have developed these field trips over many months, taking into account multiple teacher and parent surveys. We could not have created our Virtual Field Trip offering without your help; a huge THANK YOU to the countless teachers, parents, and educational partners who have contributed to our effort!

Lessons are designed to be flexible.

Even if you only have twenty minutes per week for science, your class can still experience meaningful, experiential learning through our lessons. If you have more time, you can complete the field trip more quickly or dive deeper with our optional synchronous lessons and extension activities. We want our field trip to work for YOUR students!
 

Few, if any, materials are needed.

We understand students may have limited access to materials at home, and you likely have limited time to prepare them. For this reason, our activities rarely require more than paper and a pencil. We have also designed three simple “tools” as practices to help students capture their observations and thoughts in ways that are meaningful to our program, and beyond.
 

We support State Standards and bilingual learners.

We have worksheets, audio, and video to support Spanish speakers. (We hope to add more and to support additional languages soon!) Our program has been designed to support Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core, and Executive Function Skill development. Please visit our standards webpages to learn more: Kindergarten and First Grade; Second and Third Grades; Fourth and Fifth Grades.
 

The Structure of our Virtual Field Trip

 
Our Virtual Field Trip showcases the beautiful Guadalupe River Park, with three units that focus on park ecology, plants, and animals. Each unit has two lessons consisting of short videos for students to watch, followed by a simple activity for them to complete in order to cement and deepen learning. Our (live) Synchronous Session allows students to dive more deeply into an area of your choosing and be supported by our incredible Guadalupe Guides. Our synchronous options are available for an Animal Encounter, an Orchard Tour, or a Nature Walk. We also include optional Extension Activities to deepen your students’ learning.

Scholarships Available!

Scholarships are available for the full cost of the Virtual Field Trip Program. Scholarships are available for Title One schools; please indicate your Title One status on our registration form when requesting a Virtual Field Trip. After receiving the Field Trip materials, you will be required to submit (1) a feedback form on your Virtual Field Trip experience and (2) at least two examples of student work. Failure to submit these, after receiving reminders, will impact your class’s ability to receive scholarships for future GRPC field trips, including in-person field trips. Scholarship groups will receive the Complete Package, but can opt for the Virtual Field Trip only. Scholarships are not available at this time for the Synchronous Session only.
