What would I need to do to adequately prepare my students before the visit(consider adaptations for English learners and students with special needs)?

Before beginning our adventure at the Nature Center it is important that my students become familiar with the rules that they must follow:

1. Students must stay on the trail, they will be assigned a field trip partner. They will work together and responsible for each other. They are not allowed to feed the animals or collect any plant life.
2. Students will need to bring sunscreen and water because the trails will be long and tiresome. They will be exposed to the sun for a long period so it is important that they protect their skin and stay hydrated. It is important that students also pack a lunch because we will take a break and leave the center to the park across the street and have a picnic.
3.A lesson will be necessary before going to the center as students learn about the plant kingdom, animal kingdom, nonliving and how they all interact. Students will also learn about the variety of habitats that they will experience. Using SDAIE strategies, like visuals, will be helpful so that all students with multiple learning styles will benefit.
