Our fall field trips are geared towards preschool through 2nd graders, but we do have expanded lesson plans for 3rd - 5th graders.

 




Students will learn about plant and animal science, including:

  Basic needs of a plant
  Life cycle and structure of a pumpkin plant
  Weather effects, including seasonal changes on a farm
  Importance of pollination & use of honey bees
  Basic needs of farm animals
  Visit with our calves, pigs, chickens, goats, and big pig "Penelope"
  Relevance of irrigation system
  Jobs in agriculture
  Students will also receive ample time on our farm playground and will pick a pie pumpkin from our patch before loading back onto wagon. For added fun, we have a kid-friendly Corn Maze that takes about 20 minutes to complete. This maze allows teachers to lead students through with the goal to find five finger-chalk stations that are hidden inside!
