Field trip introduces fifth graders to Muleshoe agriculture and heritagewebmaster May 27, 2022 0 COMMENTS
On Thursday, May 19, DeShazo fifth graders traveled to Davis Farm in the morning and the Muleshoe Heritage Center in the afternoon.
The kids learned firsthand about local crops and soil testing from Matt Davis of Wilbur Ellis, Brett Bamert of Bamert Seed, John Villalba, Bailey County Extension agent, and John Thobe, Bailey County Integrated Pest Management agent, according to fifth grade teacher Christy Butler.
In the afternoon, the students time-traveled back through centuries by visiting the Muleshoe Heritage Center, where they learned local history by examining artifacts and buildings.
“They had so many questions, and even though it was a very hot afternoon, many would have enjoyed more time to read and learn inside of each building,” Butler said.
