This Fall, our classrooms have taken advantage of local places to visit in our community. Our K/1 class recently visited Shelburne Orchards, to pick apples and observe apple cider making in action. When they returned to the classroom, they made amazing apple sauce and recipe books to share! Learning about Vermont History, the 2/3 class spent a day at the Shelburne Museum to experience life in early Vermont; they made beeswax candles and churned their own ice cream! The 4/5 class had a fabulous day for a class hike up Mt. Philo. We are so fortunate to have so many learning opportunities in our own backyard!
