We learned about apples this week for Nasko's homeschooling; I'll post more on those lesson plans later. Today though, we took a field trip to an apple orchard near Carlinville, IL.
This week, in preparation for our trip, we read a few books about orchards and picking apples. The kids in one of the books got to ride on a tractor, so Nasko naturally assumed he'd be able to ride a tractor as well! (Actually, he mentioned driving the tractor...) Once we got past the fact that we weren't going to be using a tractor today, we had lots of fun.
