Life on the Farm in Second Grade

Second grade students at Grant Elementary recently participated in a virtual field trip to Life on the Farm, sponsored by the University of Nebraska Extension.  The field trip took on a new look this year, students had the opportunity to zoom in with other classrooms across Madison County.  Of course, some students commented how we are not really going on a field trip!  But, they soon became excited to see how a field trip could look with 400 other students all zooming at the same time!  

After our virtual field trip, students had to choose their favorite farm animal to research.  Students learned how to use books and online resources to research their animal.  They completed a research project.  Students also wrote riddles for other students to solve about their animal.  

Thank you to the University of Nebraska Extension for providing this opportunity for our students to keep learning!
