Picked a Strawberry

We are so lucky to look across the street from our school and find one of our town's strawberry fields.  On Friday, we took a tractor ride across the street to do some strawberry picking!  We've been learning in class about life cycles of plants and animals so this was the perfect trip to see what some plants can produce.  These plants produce something red, sweet, and juicy!

We've also been singing this song all week to the tune of "Clementine"--

Picked a strawberry, picked a strawberry,

that was growing in the sun.

Then I washed it, and I ate it.

And I picked another one!

And, speaking of eating one, the man in charge told the children that they could certainly give some strawberries a taste test before putting them in their containers to take home.  Here is a picture of Megan and Austin--see, Megan has already given that strawberry a little taste!

The sun stayed behind the clouds for us on Friday morning and the cool breeze was so nice.  The children definitely had fun picking and eating and picking and eating!

When our tummies and containers were full of strawberries, we headed back to school.  What a great experience we had!
