The Land Trust for Tennessee is happy to welcome students in Grades K-4 to Glen Leven Farm for our Nature’s Classroom Field Trip Program! Our 65-acre Glen Leven Farm is a perfect outdoor classroom with resources unlike any in our area, including an educational garden, a certified arboretum, miniature donkeys and an historic home.
We invite students to use their imaginations by providing them with the tools to understand the storied history of the place and the importance of conserving land across the state.
Our Nature’s Classroom lesson plans are designed to meet state K-4 curriculum standards. Throughout the program, students are empowered to:
- Utilize their five senses in order to gather information about the immediate environment
- Study the difference between living and non-living things, producers and consumers, and how they all contribute to an ecosystem
- Explore how living things depend on one another while also competing for resources
- Learn how the food chain always begins with sunlight and plants begin with a planted seed
- Gain awareness of the fragility of ecosystems in the face of change
- Identify the basic parts of flowers, vegetable plants, and trees and what they contribute to life processes
Field trips to Glen Leven Farm are 90 minutes in duration and cost $8 per student, with an available reduced rate of $5 per student for qualifying Title I schools.
