Strawberry Fields Forever

By Early Childhood Center teachers Elaine Gain and Anna Fennessey
To supplement their gardening unit, Tiny Torreys went on a field trip to the Carlsbad Strawberry Company on Wednesday, April 19. This was a perfect opportunity to immerse themselves in first hand garden exploration. Everyone received a bucket and filled them up with fresh strawberries. They went up and down the rows of strawberry plants and gently picked the fruits off their stems. This gave them a hands on opportunity to examine the leaves, stems and flowering fruits of a strawberry plant. They were eager to use their knowledge in labeling the parts of a plant to point out the fruit they picked. 

Engaging all of their senses, Tiny Torreys listened to a story about a ripe red strawberry, looked for the biggest and ripest in the field, touched the ripe strawberries as they picked them and tasted the sweetness of their labor!
