Playschool Goes to the Orchard

“A” was for apple in Playschool last week. The students and their parents went to Carl Laidlaw Orchards to learn about apples from the farmers.

During our time at the orchard Playschool enjoyed several sensory activities.
These students had fun playing with tractors in corn and grain.
Romping in piles of hay was fun!

Before going out to the orchard we had the opportunity to try different apples.
It was a gorgeous day for a tractor ride to the orchard to pick apples.

Some families made pies. 
Making pies required some effort, as the students had to peel, break apart the apples,
mix flour, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg
before preparing the pie crusts.
Here is a pie before it goes into the oven.

Doesn’t it look delicious!
