Sometimes it can be a challenge to get students out to a farm for a field trip. A teacher at Hazelwood Elementary came up with a unique solution this fall and took her students to the nearby farmers tailgate market!
On Wednesday, September 26th, fifth graders took a field trip to Haywood’s Historic Farmers Market here in Waynesville. Students were given a “Farmers Market Treasure Hunt” to encourage conversation with the farmers and also to ensure they were looking for and learning about a variety of foods. Our students were very good sports about tasting new foods. What a treat to see them walking around eating raw okra!
