Our Favorite Farm Animals Class Graph This printable can be a part of a class lesson on graphing. We have included a page for students to create a graph and animal cut outs for students to use to record their answers. If you have a poster maker at your school, this could be turned into a great poster! A farm study can be a fun time to bring foods into the classroom.
Maybe have your students make homemade butter in a jar or sample different fruits and vegetables. What about comparing and contrasting different milks? These can be great activities for beginning scientists!
Get your students up and moving with a fun game of charades! Have students act of different actions they might see on the farm. Here are some ideas: animals, planting, driving a tractor, feeding chickens, milking cows, riding a horse.
Here are some suggestions for more hands-on activities:
- Have students plant vegetable seeds.
- Plant a class garden outside
- Cut apart a watermelon or pumpkin and count the seeds
- Create a sensory table with beans, hay, plastic garden tools and seeds
- Stage a dress up center complete with overalls, straw hats, boots, plastic gardening tools, gardening gloves and a watering can.
