Our hayride will be our transportation to and from the corn maze.
Farm Tracks Maze
New for this age group. A new activity for a little bit older hands and feet, but not ready for the “big” corn maze. We are introducing Farm Tracks. The students will be given an observation sheet. They will be patrolling a very small corn maze and looking for Farm Tracks on Medallions placed along the corn maze trails. Once they have found one, a coloring crayon will available for them to color over the medallion revealing a farm animal track!
2017 Ag Lesson-Farm to Table
We will use a toy farm to demonstrate the farm to table concept. We will talk about farmers, truck drivers, mixers, packagers, grocers and consumers. We will use Peanuts, Sunflower Seeds, M&M's and raisins. Once the demonstration is complete, the students will be given a prepacked 2 oz snack of Kar's Sweet N' Salty Trail Mix. The snack is advertised as Gluten free, but not peanut free. We will have prepackaged rice krispie treats as a sub for allergies.
We have plenty of picnic areas to accommodate 72 bodies at tables. If your group is larger, we can pull up some straw bales or blankets as seats if need be. Picnic area is by reservation only. Extra time will need to be scheduled to accommodate lunches.
Replacing the hayfort is our bin fort. It will be a vertical climbing play area with pea gravel bottom that kids can play with trucks and tractors, pails and shovels. The pedal cars are always a hit...moms and dads can ride a pedal car along side their child. The hamster rollers are always fun to watch the kids and parents manuever their coordination and balance. The bounce house has been refurbished with new nets for 2017. As always we have our games....Connect Four, Checkers, Memory Game and this year will be adding Tic-Tac-Toe.
Everyone will get a pie (softball size) pumpkin to take home! The teacher gets to choose a Jack O' Lantern pumpkin for the classroom. Teachers don't forget bags and sharpies.
We recommend 5 students per chaperone. This is a good number for the maze and also for the GORP lesson. Just a reminder to chaperones and students that they will be walking in a corn field. Tennis shoes or hiking boots are a great choice. Chaperones are welcome to enjoy the activities with the students...just keep your eyes peeled for students needing help. Also please note for chaperones bringing siblings or grandma and grandpa all will require an admission payed to the teacher. Please plan in advance.
All of our activities will be outdoors. Barbott's will advise to help teachers make informed weather decisions. Barbott's will not cancel your trip...the school has the final call. Unfortunately we do not schedule rain date reservations in addition to your field trip reservation. We will reschedule based on availability. Remember field can get muddy and slippery. Please send students in appropriate apparel.
Please take extra care at trying to collect from chaperones that are attending with your class. We would like to receive one payment from each class for our records. A receipt will be supplied at time of payment. Cash , Check, Credit Cards are acceptable forms of payment. We do not bill Schools.
