Second Grade Atoms are Awesome to the Core

Second grade Atoms visit Beak and Skiff Apple Orchard for a field trip

Tuesday, September 24, 2019—A crisp yet beautiful fall day, is perfect for a field trip to one of our beloved apple orchards in Central New York, Beak and Skiff. Second grade Atoms were eager to learn all about apples and get that 'insider scoop' from the apple experts themselves. Students learned about how the apple trees get pollinated by bees each summer, the life cycle of an apple tree through each season and a life lesson learned the hard way. For instance, did you know that 'slugs hide on the back of apples in the rain?!' Thank you, Beak and Skiff for a day that was hardcore fun!
