First Grade Visits Althauser’s Farm

On September 21st and September 22nd, 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 explored the pumpkin patch and picked a pumpkin to take home.  At another station, the students learned about honeybees and beekeepers.  Then, the students tasted 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 apple cider.  Finally, the students enjoyed a taste of apple cider.

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