Mr. Hughes and his class are smiling as one student holds up the Target Field Trip grant check Mr. Hughes received to take the class to the Hilmar Cheese Factory. There, they will follow the scientific method to make cheese — measuring volume, weight, time and temperature. The lesson integrates reading, writing, critical thinking, teamwork and decision making to achieve results. Food safety is emphasized along with nutrition concepts. The class looks forward to taking this field trip later in the school year.
