Mrs. Edler - Classroom Spotlight

The first graders in Mrs. Edler's first grade class enjoy learning about agriculture through a program called Agriculture in the Classroom.  Each month, Melinda Carbonneau, the coordinator of the program, visits several elementary classrooms and teaches various topics of agriculture.  This fall, the first graders learned about bees, pumpkins and corn.  Recently, they learned three varieties of evergreens (pine, fir and spruce), it takes seven years to grow Christmas trees and the pinecones hold the seeds. They made Christmas tree toys which create an optical illusion of a lighted tree!

 

At the end of September, students learned about apples and made homemade applesauce.  Students enjoyed pressing warm cooked apples through a sieve.  The applesauce tasted delicious!  After studying pumpkins, each student helped pull out the seeds and pulp of a pumpkin. The pulp was so slippery and slimy, but fun! The pumpkin became our class Jack-o-lantern and helped make the classroom festive for the Halloween party.

 

We are looking forward to learning about dairy cows, hogs and earthworms this winter and spring!  We enjoy learning how agriculture affects our lives and community.
