Theme 1: All about Pumpkins 

Students will learn about the many varieties of pumpkins here on the farm, the pumpkin life cycle, and the importance of pollination during this field trip.

Students will be introduced to the pumpkin plant and its various parts. They will explore the different stages of the pumpkin life cycle, from planting the seed to being ready to harvest. They will learn about the different factors that affect the pumpkins growth and development.


As the pumpkins continue to grow, students will learn about pollination, and how crucial it is in the life cycle of a pumpkin (and many other fruits and vegetables). Students will learn about different types of pollinators, such as bees and butterflies, that help to pollinate the pumpkin flowers. They will discover different varieties of pumpkins grown on the farm and how they differ in shape, size and color.


Throughout the field trip, students will engage in hands-on activities and experiments to reinforce their learning. They can ask questions and participate in discussion with their peers and instructors. By the end of the field trip, students will have a greater understanding of the pumpkin life cycle and the importance of pollination in pumpkin growth and development.

Theme 2: All about Trees

Trees, Photosynthesis & the Earth are the focus of this field trip. Students will have the opportunity to learn about the crucial role that trees and photosynthesis play in maintaining a healthy ecosystem and the ways in which they mitigate climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.


During this field trip, students will observe and learn about many different types of trees found in their local environment. They will also explore the process of photosynthesis, the chemical reaction that occurs within the leaves of trees and other plants that enable them to convert sunlight into energy.


In addition to learning about trees and photosynthesis, students will gain an understanding of the ecological and environmental benefits of trees and forests. They will discover how forests help to reduce soil erosion, provide habitat for wildlife, and support the livelihoods of humans by providing timber and other resources.


By the end of the field trip, students will have a better understanding of the important role that trees play in sustaining life on Earth, and will be empowered to make informed choices about how they can help to protect and preserve our planet's natural resources.
