WPS Students Learn About Agriculture and Wildlife

Worcester Preparatory School’s  first grade class learned about local agriculture and wildlife while on a field trip to Groundworks Farm and Trap Pond State Park. During their time on the farm, the firstgrade picked and tasted snap peas and harvested carrots. After picking the carrots, students learned how they were washed and prepped to take home. Following their visit to the farm, the first grade stopped at Trap Pond State Park where they visited the nature center and participated in “Tracks and Trace.” The program taught students how to identify clues certain animals leave behind to determine if those animals are present in that area.
