Weekly field trips are a great way to learn outside of the classroom. During this time of harvest the kindergarteners read the story Tops & Bottoms by Janet Stevens. There was a lot of discussion of harvest time, vegetables (including what parts we eat), nutrition and science. Literature is often tied into different areas of the curriculum. We took it one step further when the kindergarteners took a field trip to the Minneapolis Farmer’s Market. Everyone had a great time, identifying tops and bottoms of different vegetables, viewing the beautiful flowers and had lots of fun jumping and climbing.
