Take an Environmentally Informative Field Trip to an Organic Farm

By Beth Newingham on April 16, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

To support your school's efforts to "go green," take a field trip to a local organic farm. Most students do not grow any vegetables at home and do not raise their own animals, so going to a farm is a real eye-opener. They can see where the eggs really come from, and that it's not the grocery store. Workers at the farm can show them how the carrots grow underground, and are pulled up, cleaned, and cut up. Most farms also have a u-pick-fruit area where students can pick blueberries, strawberries, or blackberries.
