7-8s First Farm Trip

A Manhattan Country School Farm trip would never be complete without a good-bye meeting. After the luggage is loaded on the bus, students and teachers take a few minutes to share their experiences of the trip with each other.

This week, the MCS 7-8s experienced their very first Farm trip. Each child and adult took the opportunity to talk about some of the things that were memorable. The comments usually began with, “I liked…,” “I loved…” or “My favorite thing was…..”

These statements continued with the following:

  • my textiles class
  • jumping in the hay with my eyes closed
  • cooking with Donna
  • feeding Chippy his bottle of milk
  • the food
  • making mint tea
  • the cool breeze on the porch
  • swinging on the swing
  • the bonfire
  • meal time together
  • all of the food we planted in the garden
  • playing in the creek
  • our walks in nature
  • spending time with my friends
