After the Student Summit

After the Summit, teachers should reinforce the lessons learned by their students. Since each student attends a different field activity as a part of their day, time should be given in the classroom for students to share what they learned in their respective activities with each other.


Here are some general suggestions for ways to follow up on the material covered by the Student Summit.

  • Discuss the various field workshops and work stations with the class.
  • Review data collected at individual workshops and work stations and have the class graph their results and discuss their significance.
  • Consult the curricular materials listed in the teacher packed received at the Student Summit (sample below) to utilize related, appropriate lessons and activities from them.
  • Repeat some of the experiments presented at the work stations, change some of the components and compare the results to those results collected at the Summit.
  • Encourage students to research and report on species they saw at the Summit to learn more about that plant's or animal's life history.
