"We took a field trip to Kroger," teacher Cheryl Williams said. "After the tour, the students bought groceries."
Parents were asked to donate $2 for the shopping trip and students had the opportunity to talk to the workers and learn about their jobs at the store.
Students enjoyed chicken legs, pumpkin pies and corn muffins. They spent the day preparing the food and parents were invited to attend.
"The students really enjoyed preparing the food," Williams said. "They made turkey potato favors, place mats and hats for the event."
The activities provided children with the opportunity to learn through hands-on experience.
"It's great for eye and hand coordination. It allows for small and fine motor development as well as following directions, measuring, language development and print recognition," Coordinator Mary Yelton said. "Children learn through play and these are great activities for parents to do with children at home."
