Hi everyone it’s Libby the Ladybug again! Today was poultry day on the farm and the peppers got the chance to learn all about and meet some of their feathered friends.
They learned about what chickens ate, how to tell what color egg they will lay, and about different parts of eggs.
While the Red and Orange Peppers were at their chicken session the Green Peppers were in the kitchen with Ms. Kayla. Today they made scrambled eggs in a pan. The Peppers gobbled them up and were soon asking for seconds!
The Yellow Peppers were having just as much fun out in the barn feeding milk to the baby goats. Everyone was so good about sharing the bottles with other Peppers so no one missed out on the fun!
After the Yellow Peppers fed the goats, the Green Peppers came in to milk the goat.
The Orange Peppers started their afternoon with a hike in the woods. They learned about bugs and how the roots gives water to the leaves of the trees.
The Peppers had so much fun exploring the woods!
Then it was on to nest building! The Peppers made nests to cushion their eggs from a drop. They used the knowledge they learned in their earlier session about chickens to help make the best nests to protect their eggs.
In the afternoon garden kitchen the Peppers made yogurt parfaits. They crushed up granola and chopped their strawberries to make their easy, healthy snack.
The Peppers said that this was an easy snack that they would love to make at home!
What a busy day at camp! I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!
