Fun on the Farm

Part of Nature Preschool’s outdoor learning includes scheduled trips to Blandford Nature Center.  Monday was one of those days, and the Nature Preschoolers enjoyed some farm-fun learning adventures!

They loved being greeted by chickens upon arriving at the farm!

They headed straight to the pine forest, where they enjoyed exploring the different textures of the forest floor. Many of them thought that the bed of pine needles was hay -- until they looked up at the pine trees towering overhead! They also built forts, roads, "campfires" and even climbed some trees (with adult supervision of course!).

 After exploring the forest, they headed to the farm to meet Blandford's pigs.

Not only are pigs fun to watch, they provided opportunities to put shape identification and fine-motor skills to use too! They watched the pigs and talked about what kinds of shapes they could see.

They put their knowledge of shapes to work as they drew the pigs using the shapes they knew, and you can see that they worked hard to draw their pigs!

After taking a break for a snack, preschoolers got to choose from a variety of activities in the children’s garden, a place where there’s a sampling of food grown at the Blandford farm. The students picked from reading some farm-based books, sensory exploration of the compost, or helping to harvest and count the crops.

Preschool parents were invited to come for a picnic lunch and arrived just in time to find out that the preschoolers harvested 40 tomatoes (we counted them by tens) and enough kale and Swiss chard for the preschoolers to take home, along with lots of lessons learned from our trip to the farm!
