This book includes descriptions of 14 farm animals. The students can velcro symbols of the animals onto the barn after hearing the animal descriptions. The next page reveals what the correct animal is - creating a self-checking component.
I used this activity before a petting zoo field trip - you can visit my blog at http://smashinglygoodspeech.blogspot.com/2015/04/petting-zoo-fun.html to see how I used it. But this book would also be PERFECT to use with a farm animal unit since it makes no reference to a petting zoo at all.
