We begin in that time when spring has only started to make some headway against winter. When the days start to warm up but the fields are just a mass of brown dirt. We meet the equipment, the family, the hired hands, and the animals.Read more ›
Many city children go about their day with a basic schedule. Wake up, go to school, do homework, go to sleep. There are some variations like snack and play times, but overall children spend much time indoors especially during the winter months.
The book Farm takes city children on a journey showing them what life is on a Farm. Life is very different then what many children might imagine. From the set up of the farm, (using direction words like N,S,E,W) to the negative experiences of getting bitten by bugs. The children also have some responsibilities on the farm in addition to attending school. Summer is fun but then Fall rolls around and school starts again.
In addition to learning the basics of farm life, this book can open up some research questions. For example let the children make a list of their favorite fruits and vegetables. As a class you can do research on how they are planed and grow.
Having this knowledge will not only set the kids up to appreciate what life is like on a farm, but they can also appreciate how much work goes into the food they eat. This book is a great book to introduce the concept of farming and life outside the city.
