3rd grade Visits Farmer's Market
The 3rd grade students have been studying about how plants and animals survive and Middletown history. So the nice brisk Spring walk to Wesleyan's Farmer's Market on April 8th was a perfect way to learn first hand from farmers. We were able to try fresh goat cheese and mustard greens, learn about maple syrup and how bees make honey. The highlight for many was the 5 year old Angora rabbit named Seymore who sat in a basket. Students were also impressed to see several historic buildings on the walk that we will be learning about in social studies and to connect the architecture to what they have been learning about in art. If you haven't been to the Wesleyan Farmer's Market, it's well worth a visit!
