We recently enjoyed a fun field trip to a farm so of course we had to do a unit study around the farm theme. There are so many opportunities for learning with Fun on the Farm!
Our Fun on the Farm Books
This charming picture book shows scenes from farms around the world, and on every page, there are dozens of things to spot. The detailed pictures provide hours of looking and talking, and dedicated spotters will be unable to put the book down until they have found all the water buffaloes in the rice fields, the cocoa pods on the tropical farm, or eight lambs on the sheep farm. Counting sheep has never been so much fun!
How do pigs keep cool? Why do farmers shear their sheep? Which farm animals live underwater? In this book you’ll find the answers and lots more facts about farm animals around the world.
From lambs and chicks to tomatoes and fields of rice, there’s so much to find and count in the busy farm scenes in this book. Little spotters can keep track of all the things they find using the stickers in the middle of the book.
Construct an entire mini farm from simple, cardboard pieces that press out from the pages of the book. Each building is based on a simple cube design, but the details bring the farm to life.
