Like any visit, a trail will need the teacher(s) planning the work to identify clearly what will be done:

a) before

b) during

c) after the visit, to make sure that the educational value of the experience is maximised.

mediumThis should include discussion with pupils about the purpose of the trail and its intended learning outcomes. One of the main aims of any trail experience will be for pupils to learn in a more accessible and memorable way, and to enjoy their time out as well as to develop knowledge, understanding and skills.
