Students will learn about plant and animal science, including:

  • Basic needs of a plant

Students will also receive ample time on our farm playground and will pick a pie pumpkin from our patch before loading back onto wagon.

This maze allows teachers to lead students through with the goal to find five finger-chalk stations that are hidden inside!
