Educational Field Trips

The Extension Learning Farm at CCE can provide your classroom with an experiential learning opportunity that reinforces and brings to life the formal school curriculum. Field trips can be tailored to meet each classroom's individual needs, but always include a variety of hands-on lessons and activities led by experienced staff, interns, and volunteers. Programs are designed so that learning their outcomes align with school standards. Below are some examples of how we coordinate our programs with the curriculum and topics being taught in the classroom:

  • STEM concepts related to sustainable energy, animal science, and plant science.
  • Career explorations related to agriculture in St. Lawrence County.
  • Understanding both global and local food systems.
  • Literature such as "Hatchet" and experiencing outdoor survival firsthand.
  • And much, much, more!
