First Grade and Kindergarten Learn about Farms, and Get Their Hands Dirty Picking Potatoes
To bring their studies of neighborhoods, communities, and symbiotic relationships to life, first graders – joined by kindergarten class – visited the Spring Hill Jersey Cheese and Petaluma Creamery this week. The students learned about the different jobs on a farm and the products that farms produce, a great segue to their next unit on nutrition. After learning about farms, the kindergarten and first graders had a chance to get their hands dirty, digging potatoes and picking out pumpkins. The highlight of the field trip for our students was jumping in the giant pit of corn kernels (similar to a ball pit)!
