What Happens on the Farm Applies to the Classroom

It was a great week on the farm! Almost every grade level participated in science lessons on the farm this week. We are so fortunate to have an outdoor laboratory where kids can connect their learning to the real world. Everyday the kids make connections on the farm and their learning comes alive. 

Kinder learned about rocks this week, but took a quick step out into the cold to check out our lettuce crops.

5th grade is learning about fossils, so we learned about the steps that Paleontologists go through when they investigate layers in the Earth, while making their discoveries.

6th grade stepped out to learn about compost. They compared new compost to completed compost and found some really fascinating discoveries while digging in and working together. 

Mrs. Mabry's class came out to study soil. The kids learned about how it is formed and the ingredients in soil. Then they took their own soil samples from all over the farm to investigate back in the classroom. #CheersToSoil

Our Moss Haven Farmers 4 H Club met to talk about the flock and practice our hen handling skills. They are doing a great job!

The learning and crops keep growing on the farm! Check back next week for the latest lessons.
