A Trip to the Farm
Mrs. Cunyus’ 2nd grade class visited the local Lone Star Feed Store to purchase vegetable plants for their gardening project. Students also got to hold baby chicks and rabbits that were offered for sale at the farm store. Some other items that students were interested in were the local honey, livestock medications and identification supplies, seed packets, and supplies for small animals.
Haris Hashim holds the plant he selected at the local farm supply store. Students were very excited about riding in the new school bus on this field trip! Students prepare soil for planting in the 2nd grade vegetable gardening project. The class has been studying botany; roots, leaves, seeds, and plant life cycles. Students enjoyed meeting other farm animals on their field trip. They were able to pet the farm’s chickens and rooster, goats, horse, dogs, and cat.
