After discussing this field trip with other teachers this summer, I came up with an assignment for the students to complete while on the trip. Some teachers just let their kids run loose for the whole day. I hate that. Those are the kids that are causing problems.
Anyhow, so this assignment I have created should be very easy for the kids to complete. I told them it should only take them about 45 mins. to do if they did it right away. All they have to do is:
- Interview two vendors and get their picture with them.
- Describe two pieces of machinery they saw.
- When eating lunch, list how many of their food items contain some form of corn.
- Visit The Ohio State University, College of Food, Agricutural, Environmental Science booth building and learn about the university.
Why do kids complain so much just to do a little bit of work? I don't remember being like that when I was in school. You get there, do the work and then be done with it!
