Farming

We have been exploring a farming unit. We have plans to visit a horse farm in the near future and in the mean time…
We have been reading about farm animals and their jobs. We compared different animals. Bunny grouped her farm animal toys into  four legs vs two legs, and she made the observation that all the animals with only 2 legs were birds!

I made a few custom work sheets for Bee. One of the was a writing page where  she wrote about the animals we saw and on the other sheet she matched photos of animals to their names. It was fun to make up some custom pages!

We also visited an Apple farm!

Some of our favourite fall treats come from apples. Harvest time is here, so we took a trip out to an awesome apple orchard, we picked our own apples and brought them home to learn about them.

We learned about the parts of apples and their “life cycle”. We also explored fractions using apples as a hands on guide, and of course… we ate apples!

It has been fun getting out and exploring our community farms!
