Field Trip Information

Our field trip options support the Illinois Learning Standards (solving problems, communicating, using technology, working on teams, and making connections).

We will start with a group discussion on the topic of your choice. After the discussion, we will break into smaller groups of 5-8 students with one chaperone. There will be an age-appropriate activity for the topic that is chosen. Next, a tour of the small maze is included. Lastly, the student will go home with a small pumpkin or gourd as a token of the trip.

Agriculture affects everyone’s life. We look forward to meeting with young students to educate them on agricultural awareness.

Suggested topics include

  • Let’s talk about crops grown in DeKalb County
  • Understanding our natural resources and how to protect them
  • How to grow a pumpkin
