Eggert Elementary Third Grade Students Visit the Agricultural Education Center

The third grade classes at Eggert Elementary went to the Agricultural Education Center at the Erie County Fairgrounds on Tuesday November 8. Students rotated through stations to learn about turkeys, fall harvest foods, and Thanksgiving celebrations. There were connections to science concepts, such as buoyancy, and ELA/social studies concepts with Native American legends. Students participated in fun activities: building a model cornucopia, making pumpkin pie, and mapping out the planting patterns representative of the Native Americans.
