Virtual Pumpkin Patch Tour
Virtual Pumpkin Patch Tour
When: September 28th – October 30th
Available by appointment
Monday – Friday
$10.00 (includes tax) per student
Either in class on a schedule day chosen by the teacher where virtual trip is teacher led OR at home when students are completing one of their virtual learning days outside of the classroom (Patterson Farm Staff Led).
How it Works
Teachers will need to book a tour date and time just like any other traditional field trip. Teachers will need to decide if they will complete the virtual tour in the classroom or if students will complete the tour at home. Teachers will also schedule a time prior to the tour for materials to be delivered to the school for distribution to students. Materials are delivered at no charge for a 25 mile radius. There is a delivery fee for beyond 25 miles.
In Class/Teacher Led: By choosing this option you are choosing to complete this tour with your class on days in which students are in class. Teachers will be given access to our Google Slides curriculum, activities, videos, check for understanding questions, and interactive worksheets including pre-and post-assessment that can be used for a grade and turned in through Google Classroom. Patterson Farm Market and Tours will also deliver to the school materials for a hands-on activity as well as fun farm takeaways which will include a small pie pumpkin and a pumpkin activity book. After the tour is completed a scheduled time will be appointed for your class to virtually visit the farm via Zoom. Students will meet with our staff and virtually visit the farm and answer any questions they have. The Google Slide Pumpkin Patch Tour portion will last about one hour, and the Zoom call to the farm will last approximately 30 minutes.
At Home/Patterson Farm Staff Led: By choosing you are choosing to have your students complete this virtual tour at home on one of their virtual learning days. Students will need to login to Zoom and use a Zoom member ID number and password to login which will be provided by our Patterson Farm Staff. Once students are logged in a Patterson Farm Staff Member will present the entire Virtual Tour for your students. The virtual tour includes approximately 30 minutes of pre-recorded videos and activities. In the Google Slides presentation students will get to do a hands-on activity. The materials for this tour will be delivered to your school before your virtual tour. The materials will be prepackaged and ready for your students to use and take home. Students will also get an activity book and a small pie pumpkin for them to take home. After the presentation portion of the virtual tour one of our Patterson Farm Staff will be able to take you around the farm property so your students can get to be up close and personal with some of our animals and answer any pumpkin or farm related questions they may have.
