Pumpkin Field Trip

Fall field trips are offered Monday through Friday, September 22 - November 3, 2017.
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!
