In my classroom, I can see myself using this tool as a helpful resource for planning field trips and informing parents on where we will be going and what’s happening. Sending this to chaperones will be especially helpful if they can access the maps on their phone because the teacher can plan ahead and add any information they might need to know along the way like emergency numbers, meeting times and places, estimated arrival times, assigned groups, and obviously directions.
Starting at the University of Portland, students will meet at the Chiles Center to carpool and then follow the driving directions to the Oregon Zoo. After meeting out front of the zoo to group up with chaperones, groups will follow the yellow icons around the zoo to see certain animals and have a designated spot to meet up for lunch.
Note: these are not exact locations of animals, just examples of what you could do if you knew the real places.
