Pumpkins Flew on a Fall Field Trip to Our Farm

Elementary Atoms visit Golub, “Our Farm,” on a fall field trip

Tuesday, October 29, 2019It’s not every day that you get to witness a pumpkin flying. On a recent field trip to the Golub, “Our Farm,” Atoms had a front row seat to this physics experiment. With the help of the Golub family, they placed a pumpkin on a catapult and launched it across the field - interestingly enough, when pumpkins hit the ground they make a loud bang noise! Students were also able to meet and pet the animals on the farm, such as a 10 week old calf, goats, rabbits, sheep and dogs. What’s more, Atoms had the opportunity to ride a horse. Their favorite part of this fall field trip was not only picking their own pumpkins to decorate for Halloween, but completing a challenging dragonfly corn maze. Thank you Golub Family for such a fun field trip on your family’s Farm. A perfect start to a holiday.
