Our 5 kindergarten/Tk classes take one field trip each school year. We have been going to Underwood Family Farms for the past 10 years. It's a wonderful farm that grows the most delicious strawberries! This year the strawberries were especially sweet. Yum!! The trip begins with a visit to the farmer's classroom to learn about fruits and vegetables. This is followed by a tractor ride to the strawberry fields for some strawberry picking. Each person is given a plastic container to fill and take home (this includes teachers and parent volunteers!).
Picking fruit is hard work so lunch comes next. We eat at one of the reserved picnic areas. We wrap up our trip with a visit to the animal pens and play areas. It always surprises me to learn the number of students are have never been up close to animals before. The traffic out to Moorpark was pretty bad this year. Traffic during field trips is always nerve wracking for teachers. You wish you could just slip your ear buds in and close your eyes,.... if only for the ride home.
Thank you Underwood Family Farms for another successful field trip!
