HEB Field Trip

We have been busy this month learning about farms and how they are a part of our daily lives.  As part of our investigations, our class took a walk to our neighborhood HEB grocery store to learn more about how farmers' products are taken to the market to be sold or made into other products. Ms. Jones and a few of her students also joined us for the trip.

We begin our journey hand in hand...

We arrived and received a special treat- an HEB Buddy crown!

Next, we took a tour of the different departments in the store.  We learned that there are seven:  deli, produce, market, seafood, dairy, bakery, and pharmacy.  During our stop in the produce section, we even got to play a special game!  We took turns guessing which fruit or vegetable was placed in our hands by using only our senses of touch and smell.  We also learned how to help our parents make healthy choices when we tag along for a trip to the market.

We were especially intrigued by the fresh delivery in the seafood department!

At the end of our adventure, our friends at HEB gave us a grocery sack filled with a fruit, coloring books and pages, stickers, and buddy bucks.  Our class also received a box of chocolate chip cookies from the bakery department that we enjoyed when we arrived back at school.
