PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Head down to the farm to learn all about farms and farm animals! Guide K-3 students through the writing process. Teach them to research facts, take notes, and write informational paragraphs. Have students create adorable craft projects to display their research or writing. Explore topics such as where our food comes from, learn about the names of different animals, and label animal body parts.

These activities are aligned with ELA Common Core Standards.

Media Connections Build students’ background knowledge by showing videos of farms and accessing reliable websites. I’ve provided a list of possible videos, websites, and movies.

From Farm to Table + Center Activity and Response Sheet Explore the topic of where our food comes from.

I’ve included an activity page for the students to do, along with word and picture cards to use as a center activity.

Display posters that illustrate the names of animals within an animal family. I’ve included an activity page for students, along with word and picture cards to use as a center activity.

All About Farm Animals - Research Charts Teach your student how to take notes as they learn facts about farm animals. Using a simple graphic organizer, students will write what animals “are” “can” do, “have” and “need”, and record an interesting fact. Use the charts in a display with craftivities or assemble the pages into an interactive notebook. Color and black and white versions are provided.

Informative Writing Once your students have taken notes, they can transform their animal facts into sentences and paragraphs using the draft, editing, and neat sheet templates I’ve provided. I've included writing paper with 3-guide lines for your beginning writers, and single lines for intermediate writers.

Craft Projects Have students make craft projects to display written work. I’ve included craft project templates for the following animals: horse, cow, pig, sheep, chicken, goat, duck, and goose.
