Farm to Field Trip

Help me give my students the opportunity to have a quality hands-on experience in the real world environment.

My Students

I teach a very special group of students who have very special needs. My students have Autism Spectrum Disorder. Autism refers to a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication, as well as by unique strengths and differences.

Autism symptoms often include difficulty processing sensory information such as lectures, sounds, smells, tastes, brightness, and movement.

These difficulties can make ordinary situations feel overwhelming. As such, they can interfere with daily function and even isolate individuals and their families.

My Project

Five students in my special needs autism classroom will have the opportunity to be included with the general education 4th-grade classes on this environmental sciences field trip. This experience will allow them to first build relationships and social skills.

What they learn at farm school will allow them to apply classroom learning concepts to the natural and real world.

Experiencing farm to table living is an important life lesson.

They will participate in team projects and supporting one another in learning. This social networking skill is essential to kids with autism spectrum disorder.

Hands-on learning experiences connect the outside world with students’ learning in the classroom. They will be learning how food and water systems work. This will allow them to understand power of personal choice and how choices affect our world.
