First we made a visit to the animals! We saw the goats, sheep, cows, chickens, and rooster! We failed to capture it on camera but we were all laughing at one goat who defiantly stood on top of the hay stack, lording over the other goats who were eating. We were wondering how he would get down when we got to witness the incredible feat of his jumping over his compatriots. Watching him land solidly on his feet and walk away from the group, we had to admit perhaps he had earned the proverbial title of "king of the haystack".
The chickens and cows were fun to see as well! The chickens "chattered" to us the whole time and the rooster called his welcome nice and loud for all to hear again and again. We were happy to learn more about the chickens from the informational signs posted on the pens and were appreciative of the time it must have taken to hang the signs.
Giving our children access to nature and the opportunity to develop an appreciation for preservation and diversity plays an important part in the way we teach at Beansprouts. We are committed to helping our children connect to our natural world in a way that helps them become stewards for preservation and lovers of nature so they may grow up and care for the world in which we live.
