“We specialize in a hands-on learning environment

Admission is $8.00 per child, $4.00 per adult chaperones, and teachers are free. Each child will be provided with a pre-picked pumpkin.  We offer both half and full day programs, daily attendance is limited.  During the full day program the students rotate through six educational topics.  Some of the topics discussed through out the day are: history, mathematics, problem solving, geography, farm animals, types of cultivation, conservation practices, significance of the Zekiah Swamp, indigenous flora and fauna, and soil.

 

The topics are:

  1. Maze - the theme changes yearly, based on historical, natural, or locally significant topics.  We use the small maze where six learning stations are placed through out, providing information on the current theme.  The students collect stamps on the activity sheet.
  2. Tractor Ride - During the tractor ride our educator will teach the students about types of cultivation, conservation practices, significance of the Zekiah Swamp, indigenous flora and fauna, and soil.
  3. Fun Facts - Our educator will use fun activities and every day items to teach about mathematics and problem solving.
  4. Animal Barn - Our educator will introduce the students to the livestock.  They will learn about each animal, what they eat, care, uses, and have an opportunity to interact. 
  5. Early Farm Life History - Featuring Mrs. Webb, who was born on the farm in the 1920s.  She will discuss farm life as a child growing up and have period tools to demonstrate.  This is truly a uniqueand one of a kind opportunity. 
  6. Fall Harvest - Our educator will discuss with the students the history of the fall harvest, modern and alternative uses, basic parts of the plant, introduction of photosynthesis, and biodegradable.
