Read chapter Chapter 8 Wrapping it up essay scenario: Field Trip Safety The teachers at the Sunrise Early Childhood Center, located in a downtown neighborhood, developed a series of lesson plans about zoo animals that they will implement this coming school year. The lessons address the topic across several curricular areas, including science, language and creative arts, outdoor play, and nutrition education. The teachers are also looking into the possibility of organizing a field trip to the local city zoo. They know that field trips can be an enriching and reinforcing learning experience and that many of the children in this program have never had an opportunity to be close to zoo animals. However, the teachers also understand the challenges involved in taking a group of twenty 3- and 4-year-olds on this type of excursion. Their main priority is arranging safe transportation because the zoo is located on the other side of town. They must also be prepared to care for one child who is allergic to bee stings and several others who have pollen allergies and asthma.
After reviewing the scenario on field trip safety, discuss any issues that might present concerns regarding licensure, safety, liability, and /or risk management. 10-12 sentences
