Our second grade classes had a wonderful time at the farm today! We learned about bees, baby animals and even saw a sheep being sheared!We learned that meat gives us Z.I.P. Zinc is good for our minds; iron is good for our blood; and protein is good for our muscles. Each student was given a small snack with all foods from ChosseMyPlate.gov to show us what we should be eating each day: fruits, vegetables, protein, grains and dairy. We learned that crops need five things to grow: water, air, food (fertilizer) soil and sun! We even had a chance to make seed necklaces and now we get to watch our seeds grow! Harward Farms did an amazing job teaching us. Thank you for letting us come!
