With things being a little different this year as we all continue to adjust to this new world we are living in, we have decided to adapt our field trip experiences. We have recreated the same experiences students would experience on the farm, but virtually. For September we have the Virtual Corn Maize Tour, offed now through September 25! In this virtual tour, students will be able to virtually complete our corn maize by correctly answering questions about the history of corn, modern-day corn, and how the corn growing process works. Book your tour today at https://www.visitpattersonfarm.com/virtual-tours/virtual-corn-maize-tour/#booking
Patterson Farm Market & Tours Staff has been working extremely hard to develop a virtual field trip program to best recreate the experience of an onsite field trip to the farm. Our goal is to always educate students on the importance of agriculture education and how essential the agriculture industry and its workers are to the community.
Students will virtually complete our corn maze with the help of a Patterson Farm staff member. Students will be asked questions via Zoom and if they get them correct they will be shown the correct direction to finished the maze. Participants will learn about the history of corn, modern day corn, the corn growth process, the parts of a corn plant, the history of corn mazes and so much more. Lastly students will also visit of barnyard and take a wagon ride around at the end of the tour.
Either in class on a schedule day chosen by the teacher where virtual trip is teacher led OR at home when students are completing one of their virtual learning days outside of the classroom (Patterson Farm Staff Led).
