The kindergarten classes visited Schmitt’s Farm where the children enjoyed a bumpy wagon ride to a vegetable and pumpkin patch.  They learned how crops grow and are harvested.  They were able to pick string beans, radishes and a pumpkin to take home.  Each class left with a string bean plant, some radishes, a corn stalk and a pumpkin.  We took these crops back to our classroom for a closer look.   We talked about the properties of pumpkins both inside and out.  Some brave children even touched the inside of the pumpkin.  Our trip to Schmitt’s farm really succ-seeded our expectations!
