First-Graders Get a Tasty Lesson

Members of Sophia Armstrong’s first-grade class visited the Sheldon Museum Sept. 20 for a lesson on local apples, including getting to harvest some from the tree planted beside the museum. Above from left are Selby Long, Dalton Henry, Kate Benda and Alex Weerasinghe. Museum education coordinator Scott Pearce used a picker to pluck the fruit for students.
