Second Grade Field Trip - HEB

On March 22nd, students in the 2nd grade took a field trip to HEB in Brenham. Staff gave them a tour of the store, stopping at each department (produce, meat, dairy, bakery). Students learned how to comparison shop for the better value, how the checkout process works, and also healthy vs. non-healthy choices. While exploring, they were able to sample many different foods from the department and take a peek inside the freezers and coolers. HEB staff rewarded the class with HEBuddy crowns and bucks to spend on their next trip!
