Grade 1 field trip Apple/Pumpkin Farm October 5,2011
Our field trip took us to the same farm which we visited last year, which is actually perfect. As the weather was not all too cooperative this year, we knew where we were going and what to dress for. I was fortunate to go in a vehicle of parents this year instead of the bus with the kids. All the kids arrived safe and sound, broke up in their appropriate groups. We were schooled in the variety of apples, how to pick them and how they are stored. We also visited the farm animals which included some babies. And well not to forget but a hay ride out to the pumpkin patch to pick a perfect pumpkin! All the kids were well behaved and had a terrific time. They were gifted some apples in addition to their pumpkins and the class took a vote to make apple pie. So our teacher was kind enough to bring ingredients and made three apple pies for the class the following day. Sam was in heaven!
