I went with Versii's 1st Grade class on their field trip to the Clackamas Land Lab. A 14-acre hands-on working farm where students learn how to grow and produce food. The high school students who work there are taking electives in agriculture and animal science.
(Above: Versii's farm painting created with watercolor and oil pastels.)
Watching the sheering of the sheep.
Feeling the wool.
Meeting the animals.
We saw cows, pigs, chicks and sheep.
The kids were each given a bean that they wrapped in a damp cotton ball. ---Versii's bean has now grown to be over 8 inches tall. I'll add a picture soon.
After the field trip, Versii wanted me to stay and help out in his classroom.
