First Grade Visits Althauser’s Farm

On September 24th and 25th, first grade classes traveled to the Althauser’s Farm to learn more about living things.  The farm had stations set up for the students to learn about different seasonal activities and jobs on the farm.

At one station, the students could explore the pumpkin patch and pick a pumpkin to take home.  At another station, the students learned about honeybees and beekeepers.  Then, the students got to taste real honey from the Althauser Farm.  At a third station, the students listened to Mr. Althauser explain how to pick apples from an apple orchard and then watched him make cider.  Finally, the students enjoyed a taste of apple cider!  Yum!

The weather for the field trip was beautiful on both days and the students had a lot of fun learning about pumpkins, bees, and apples.

Below are pictures from the field trip:
