Down on the Farm
In Your Home
There are many different types of farms. There are wheat farms, orchards, and egg farms just to name a few.
This website will help you explore different farms by introducing you to the farmers who run them and showing you some of the machines they use and some the jobs they do.
Start Your Own Farm
Crayola has a large selection of activity sheets available online to print and colour. You could use these sheets to make some farm animals and start your own farm! You could make a bull, a turkey, a sheep, a cow and a horse. What will you name your new friends? Where will they live?
What else can you draw for your farm?
Learn a New Song!
Here are few links to some great youtube videos from our friends Dana and Lindsey at Jbrary.com. These two children’s Librarians love sharing story time songs, rhymes and games. In these videos, they teach you farm themed storytime songs. Take a listen and see if you can make them your own!
