St. George’s Preschool looked more like farm than a school last week.
That because students there participated in a farm-themed week. There were opportunities throughout the week to help create and paint a cardboard barn, make butter, bread and popcorn, plant vegetables, wash clothes on old-fashioned washboards and milk a wooden “cow” complete with an udder constructed from a latex glove holding real milk.
Pony Horses and Petting Zoo, a company out of Northridge, brought the highlight of the week, though — a visit from live animals on Feb. 3 and 4. Students from ages 3 to 5 got the chance to milk a goat and learn and feed the other animals on campus, including an alpaca and sheep.
