Throughout the month of October our kindergarteners across the district experienced their first ever school field trip to the Balmer Dairy Farm in Lititz.
During the field trip, students were able to dive into all things farm. Students rotated between six stations where they met a newborn calf, saw the robotic milking machine in action, learned about what it takes to run a dairy farm, listened to how a veterinarian cares for cows on the farm, and much more!
This field trip was a great introduction to the Dairy Farms Unit that students will begin in the spring.
“We had a terrific visit and learned so much about the importance of farming.” - Mrs. Class, Kindergarten Teacher at John Beck Elementary.
