Good-bye Bees and Apple Trees!
We were so lucky that the weather cooperated for us on our field trip. It had rained most of the day before and when I woke up the morning of the trip, it was a dribbly rain. This is a rain or shine field trip, but it is SO MUCH more fun if the weather is nice! But as luck would have it, when the honeybee presentation was over, the sun came out and my little kinders had their apple cider and apple donut snack outside and played in the orchard playground! Woo hoo!
We are so blessed to have an orchard so close to our school. It takes less than 15 minutes to drive there. The orchard added a new classroom setting to their facility and it is a very pleasant place for our little ones to learn about bees. We have a choice of visiting the orchard, picking a pumpkin, or learning about bees. We always choose the bee presentation because it is such a nice segway into our insect unit. Of course, we base most of our insect unit on the honeybee. We do touch upon general characteristics of insects, but for the most part, it is all about bees with this unit!
