Learn and test farm animal facts with this Mystery Farm Bag activity.
You will need:
- this download
- brown paper bags
- tape and glue
- optional (farm animal figurines)
Print the clues in this download, and then cut the clue sets. Glue each clue set to a paper bag. Hide the animal picture or figurine answer inside each bag.
Choose a bag, then read the clues on it. Conduct a discussion by accepting a few guesses by students. Then open the bag to see who guessed the correct animal OR accept guesses until someone guesses the right one. If you have a couple of different guesses, you could ask the class to vote, e.g., raise your hand if you think it is a cow inside this bag, raise your hand if you think it is a pig inside the bag, etc.
Optional: If you have a barn or a box. Place the animal answers inside after being removed from a bag.
