Third grade students at mastered their Spanish vocabulary during a recent trip to .
Everywhere the students looked they found things that they could name and describe en Español.
In addition to finding an abundance of opportunities to use their Spanish vocabulary and discover a few new words 'in situ,' students were treated to an educational hayride.
After the hayride, Farmer Nancy Linvill Dole, an MPFS alum, took students on a tour of the farm's new "green greenhouse" where they learned about its woodchip-burning furnace and geothermal heating systems while they continued to practice their Spanish vocabulary.
The afternoon trip concluded with a stop at the apple sling shots where students tried to direct their apples at targets with Spanish words created especially for their trip.
