Our First Field Trip!
The Arctic Room

This month PreK took their first field trip to Schnepf Farms! We had so much fun picking veggies, taking a train ride through the farm and visited the petting zoo!
We saw cows, pigs, goats, chicken, peacocks and even deer. We picked fresh arugula that I hope everyone went home and tasted!

We learned all about a working farm and how many hours and people it takes to run a farm. We also learned how important it is for our grocery stores and communities to have working farms close by!

Fall in the Arctic Room!

We have had a busy fall in the Arctic Room! We did many fall activities and enjoyed a huge Thanksgiving feast! The students really enjoyed making our Thanksgiving table and telling one another everything they were thankful for! We even made homemade butter to share with our school!

Thanksgiving Feast with our class! We had rolls, cheese cubes, oranges, cranberries, popcorn, turkey, pumpkin pie and apple juice! Yum!

Making Butter!
The kids loved shaking the mason jar and trying to turn the heavy cream into butter! Everyone wanted seconds on their rolls!

Shake, Shake, Shake!

We had a busy fall in the Arctic Room and can't wait for all the fun around the holidays!
