                    What are they?     
               The objective of the tours are to introduce children (ages 4-7) to items found                  on a farm and to help them connect with where their food comes from.  
         For 2 weeks in May, high school students enrolled in the Animal Science courses provide tours                          of  the 14-acre school farm. 
 
 
 
The tours are free of charge!  There is limited space, so schedule early!

How Do I prepare for the Day of the Tour?
 1.  Please check the weather forecast....if it is rainy, please ask students to wear shoes they can get dirty.  We have a gravel driveway, and when it rains, it does get a little muddy.
2.  We would love to have your students broken into groups of 8-10 with at least one other adult assigned to that group.  We will have 2 high school students assigned to each group to be their tour guides.
3.   A great resource website for K-6 materials on agriculture, food and natural resources:  http://aitc.oregonstate.edu/
4.  This year's reading station will include the Literacy Project book selected by Oregon Ag In The Classroom.
 
 
What happens when we arrive at the Land Lab? 
 If you are arriving by CARS:  please pull up into the driveway and wait for directions regarding where to park.  We have parking on the upper portion of the facility and can guide your drivers up there.
 
If you are arriving by BUS:  We will direct the bus driver as to where they can unload and park their bus for the duration of their stay.  All bus drivers will need an adult spotter when backing up on the property.
 
Assuming you already have your students divided into groups of 8-10 per group, please assemble the groups on the big circle lawn that exists in the middle of all the buildings.  We will then assign high school tour guides to your groups.  
 
 Can We Stay Longer than our Tour?
We do have some groups who stay longer to have  a snack on our big circle lawn.  You are welcome to do so, however, please note that our high school students will have to catch a bus to go to their next class and we do not have a good 'undercover' place for large groups to meet in inclement weather.
