Apples Everywhere at FECC
Ms. Shelby and Ms. Ana's Little Eagles preschool class at FECC learned about apples this week in preparation for their field trip to Blake's. At FECC playing is learning! Students participated in apple taste testing to find their favorite type. They used science tools such as scales and magnifying glasses to explore real apples. They even had their very own apple orchard in class where they could pick apples as well as buy and sell apples, donuts and pies!

Students then were allowed to use watercolor paint to add color where they wanted.
