Early Childhood Visit to Indian Ladder Farms

Early Childhood on Tuesday visited Indian Ladder Farms as a culmination to their “Spring” unit of study. During the unit, students observed signs of spring outside and drew pictures of changes they noticed in the environment. They watched robins fly back in search for food. They splashed in puddles from recent rain. They rescued worms on the sidewalk and brought them back to the dirt. And, finally, they visited the farm to see all of spring’s new life, including: baby bunnies that were only a week old; and two-week old baby goats, called kids, who were frolicking around in their play pen and still drinking out of a bottle. But the students’ favorite: baby chicks and poults (baby turkeys) that were hatching out of their eggs.
