Recently Mrs. Tara Farr and Mrs. Amberly Kariuki's kindergarten classes went to Cal Ranch to learn about baby chicks and ducks. This field trip went along with the unit about Farm Animals that is in the Kindergarten Core Curriculum. While there the students learned about how to take care of a chick, what they eat, how to keep them warm, etc. They also talked about how they come from eggs just like dinosaurs do so in a way a dinosaur is just a big chicken! The students were able to pet the chicks and ducks.
Recently Mrs. Kristi Jensen's class went on a Farm Field Day at Harward Farms in Springville. Students were excited to see a sheep sheared, they thought it was fun to touch the wool. The students moved from station to station learning about something new at each one. They learned all about bees, farm animals, and farm safety. At one of the stations the students got to make a necklace: a small plastic bags strung on yarn, the students got to plant a wheat seed in the dampened cotton in the bag. They then got to wear their necklaces home.
