Science with Peter Schriemer

Mr. Peter Schriemer came into our class to tell the children about insects, particularly beetles.  The screams and oooohs could be heard when Peter showed some of the mounted and live insects.  He also taught the children some characteristics of insects and how they are different from spiders.  He showed a clip from a science video he had produced about beetles and how to catch them and build a “bug house.”  Mr. Schriemer loves God and His creation and loves to teach children about God’s world.

Field Trip to the Apple Orchard

We took the bus to Erwin Orchards.  For some children, it was the first time to ride a bus!  We were blessed with a beautiful, sunny, warm day.  Picking apples from the dwarf trees was so much fun! The apple pickers enjoyed eating a fresh, juicy apples…right from the tree.  After apple picking, it was fun eating lunch at the picnic tables, riding on the tricycles, feeding the goats,  and playing on the haystacks.  Before heading back to school on the bus, the highlight of the trip was eating donuts and drinking sweet apple cider.  Thank you, God, for such a beautiful day!
