2nd Grade Field Trip

October 1, 2021 no comments Tina Andreasen Categories Uncategorized

Miss Holland’s and Mrs. Andreasen’s second graders traveled to Nebraska City to visit Arbor Day Farm.  Students were given a tour of the apple orchard.  They were shown how apples are picked, cleaned, and made into apple cider and applesauce.  We enjoyed a sample of apple cider.  Students learned about the history of Arbor Day Farm and the importance of planting trees.  We also learned about bees and how they help the apple orchard produce apples.

In the afternoon, students had the opportunity to explore the Treetop Village and hiking trails.  The 2nd graders loved the ropes course with the netted trampoline and the zip line.  Each student left Arbor Day Farm with a tree to plant at their home.  It was a great day exploring nature!
