Field Trips: Autumn
Autumn is one of the busiest times for farms across Canada. So get your class involved with this fall’s harvest and take them to an educational farm near you. Many touring and teaching farms offer educational programs designed especially for large class groups.
Some farms conduct curriculum-appropriate activities in which students participate, have fun, and learn all about farm life.
Farm workers are full of useful information, impart farm facts, and will lead activities teaching students all they need to know about farm life.
Educational farms also have hands-on activities such as feeding chickens, churning butter, harvesting vegetables, and other daily farm chores. Students can get up close and personal with cows, goats, picks, geese, and horses.
Hop on the hay wagon and get your students experiencing and learning about the Canadian autumn harvest.
