2nd Grade Harward Farms Field Trip

On Wednesday, April 6th, the second grade students from Sage Creek Elementary had the pleasure of visiting Harward Farms in Springville for their annual Farm Field Day.  How much do YOU know about Agriculture? Well, we learned things like: a plant needs five things to grow:  water, air, sunlight, soil, and nutrients; the Z.I.P. you gets from eating beef stands for zinc, iron, and protein; and a mother sheep is called a ewe!  Thank you, Harward Farms, for an amazing day of learning!!
