Our daughter's class (grade 2) will be visiting the agricultural museum next week as a field trip to learn about animals and their life systems (growth and change).

I hope to attend, I'm not sure what to expect but I think I'll feel better if I'm there.

Her school has been very good this year but there are times when I simply feel that I don't know enough about the up coming situation to deem it safe.

Daughter: asthma, allergies to egg, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, most legumes (not soy and green beans) & penicillin. Developing hayfever type allergies.
Husband: no allergies
Me: Oral Allergy Syndrome, Allergic to Birch trees

I would say go if you can. Farms often have treats for the kids. Usually it's an apple -- but you never know.

self: allergy to sesame seeds and peanuts
3 sons each with at least one of the following allergies: peniciilin, sulfa-based antibiotic, latex, insect bites/stings

I"d go - if at all possible.

They do post the spring school programs on their website. Depending on the program your teacher selects, there is at least which would be a problem for someone with a dairy allergy! ... /index.cfm[url]

Chill Out!
Grades 1 to 3 (Cycle 1)
$6 per student
Duration: 90 minutes
May 6 to June 18, 2009

Students learn the journey from cow to cone as they tour the Museum’s dairy barn and our demonstration milk house. They race against time as they decide which method is most efficient — an electric ice-cream maker or an old-fashioned manual one. If they break a sweat, there is plenty of ice cream to help them cool off at the end of this program! (A-33)
