Kindergarten Fall Pumpkin Farm Field Trip
Kindergarteners were partially funded a field trip to Swans Trail Farm.
Student Grant Recipient Total: 52
Award Amount: $911
Kindergarteners got to experience picking pumpkins to take home, petting farm animals and jumping on the trampoline during their EE STARS funded field trip to Swans Trail Farm in October. EE STARS was able to fund $910.73 out of the total cost of $1254.99 resulting in EE STARS donations covering 72% of this grant request.
During this field trip, kindergarteners saw their plant life cycle science curriculum come to life by experiencing pumpkins growing in their natural environment. The trip gave students a multi-sensory learning experience and served as a springboard for their first formal art lesson. Back in the classroom, the kindergarteners learned about line work and oil pastels as they created pumpkin artwork. In addition to visiting the farm, students were able to bring home any pumpkin they chose as long as they could carry it on their own.
