1st grade Farm Field Trip

Last week Henry had his first spring field trip for the end of the school year. They went to a dairy farm and got to see how email girl works and three different breeds of cows. They also had a petting zoo with a lamb a goat piglets and a pony for them to pet.

 There was also a couple pieces of Machinery they were allowed to go sit in and pretend to drive. Henry opted not to go into the skid steer because he can do that anytime he wants with his grandpa. The last collage on the bottom is some pictures of some other friends of his, he is in the one of them eating a snack.

This was just the three classes of first grade that went on this field trip. This Farm ships to organic valley, so it is an organic dairy farm. The Minnesota Dairy Association sponsors Farm field trips for the kids. And 3rd grade he gets to go to another Farm. Earlier this year they had a field trip to the library , which is something that he has been to a lot and has his own library card but a lot of kids have not in this may be the first time they have ever been there or the first time they are getting their own library card.

He has one more field trip coming up later in the month to the Crayola Experience at the Mall of America. I wasn't picked to be one of the free chaperones but they gave the option before other adults to pay for their own admission to come along as a chaperone so I will be doing that.
