Field Trips: Early Learning

Our current program offerings for this age group (preschool to kindergarten) are below. Please visit our Learning Standards by Grade & Field Trip Theme document for more information on how our offerings align with learning objectives.

Pumpkin Science

Let’s journey together to our pumpkin patch, where students and educators will pick out their very own pumpkin, all while engaging in an age-appropriate exploration of the life cycle of plants, plant parts, and their functions. This field trip includes a tractor ride and a pumpkin for each student.

Seeds and Their Needs*

Together, we will investigate the role of seeds on the farm and the natural world around us. We will investigate a variety of seeds, how they move with the help of native creatures, and what seeds need to succeed - not to mention why all of this is important on a farm!

Pollinators, Plants, and People*

Join us on a journey around the farm as we discover how senses are integral to the survival of pollinators, plants, and people. We will explore plant anatomy, methods of pollination, pollinators, and the many ways seeds are dispersed.

*Depending on the season, there may be opportunities for student groups to harvest and taste crops. Ask the CCFEC Education team for more information!

Looking to extend your time on the farm? Add a book stroll to any field trip! Weaving together imagination and experience, we will read a story and stroll throughout the farm to search for more connections to the farm and the natural world around us.
