SPecial Edition Update - Field Trip!
Post Family Farm does an amazing job leading field trip groups and we were able to pack a lot of fun and learning into our time there. Students started out on the pumpkin train. It was so fun to see them smile as the tractor pulled them around and around. Next, they got to play on the rope swings and jump and play in the hay. After that, students got to slide down the giant tube slides, and I enjoyed waiting at the bottom and hearing them giggle all the way down. It was time to head inside to learn about the life cycle of a pumpkin next. This was taught through a fun, interactive story and students did a great job participating! Following our pumpkin lesson students got to enjoy the famous Post Family Farm pumpkin donut and a cup of apple cider. After a nice little break and a treat, students got to see and pet some of the farm animals. There were a couple calves, some goats and lots of chickens. We finished the tour part of our trip with a hayride to pick pumpkins. It was so fun to see students searching for their own perfect pumpkin. Before heading back to school we ate lunch outside and students got to enjoy the sunshine as they rode the zip lines and maneuvered the obstacle course.
I want to thank all of our chaperones who took time out of their busy schedules to accompany us on our trip. This trip would not have been possible without you.
