The delicious taste, crisp crunch, sweet smell, vibrant red and smooth texture of apples fit perfectly into the five senses unit Lanigan Elementary School kindergarteners learned ahead of their field trip to the Greco Family Farm in Oswego.
All three kindergarten classes went on a tractor ride, learned how apple cider was made and trekked through the orchard to find their most perfect apple, all while referring back to the five senses they learned in school.
Teacher Dianne Sestak said the students were well prepared for their visit, as they read several stories about apples as a class, learned about the cycle of apples and made apple crafts. After the trip the students would make applesauce together in class, she said.
Just as the classes were changing stations they were greeted by a very special guest: Principal Jeff Hendrickson.
