Grades 1-3 had an amazing time at Willowgrove Farm on Monday. This is the first time CGS students have visited the farm and it was a huge success. Expect to see this field trip on the calendar in the future. Marie and Janelle from the farm were great with the kids. Highlights included the hay ride behind the tractor, playing in the hayloft (complete with tire swings and slides) and visiting with the animals. They even learned how to milk a pretend cow! Searching for pond and stream creatures took up much of the afternoon. There were water spiders, crayfish, mayfly and damselfly larvae and ‘water pennies‘.
It was a great day spent in the fresh air and sunshine!
