Hun Sixth Graders Learn Earth Science over Apples at Terhune Orchards
Hun Middle School sixth graders combined learning and fun recently when they visited Princeton’s Terhune Orchards. Lessons learned included: how tree varieties are bred through grafting; how compost happens when waste is eaten by bugs, birds, and microbes; and how corn is pollinated when bees land on their silk, a strand of which is connected to each kernel. Add in apple picking, pumpkin choosing, and cider donuts, and you have a fun fall learning experience.
The Hun School of Princeton is an independent, coeducational, private day and boarding college preparatory school. Student-centered, hands-on learning prepares students for the global community in which they will live and work.
