Our Classical Conversations co-op took a field trip to Sharp's Farm - a pilgrim farm in the area. Here we all are...who says homeschoolers don't socialize? *wink
We began with a really neat corn maze. At each choice in the maze, there was a question to answer. You were given two choices as answers, each with a direction of which way to head next. If you got the right answers, you made it through the maze. My girls had a blast with this!
We had some time to feed the animals in between activities.
All aboard for the hayride!
It provided a nice sit down moment for the moms!
We went right through the creek, which the kids loved!
I truly love experiencing these activities and days with my girls! (D - age 22 months - was experiencing a wonderful day with grandma due to the length of field trip)
The day ended with a rotation to various speakers and activities. We learned about the ways of the Indians...
life as a pilgrim...
and about games the pilgrim children played. This last station was the favorite for my kids!
It was a bit long for little T (age 4), but she hung in there until the last speaker. Then she chose to sit outside with me while K (age 6) sat in with group. We had a great day and perfect weather!
