Farm Learning Unit!

On the Farm Learning Unit!!
Paper Plate Cow!

Cut a circle out of pink paper.  Draw on nostrils and a mouth.  Cut out horns and ears and glue them to the plate.  Draw eyes and black spots.

Paper Plate Rooster!

Trace hand on red craft foam and cut it out.  Glue the hand to the top of the plate.  Cut 2 oval eyes from black craft foam, a beak from yellow craft foam and a  "gobbler" (that is what I call them!!)  out of red craft foam.  Glue all of the pieces to the Paper Plate.

Pigs in the Mud!
I drew a pig template onto pink construction paper and cut it out.  We glued on a pink button nose, a twisted pink pipe cleaner and drew on two black eyes.  The 3 younger ones glued their pig onto a piece of "mud" (brown construction paper that I had cut into a "mud" shape)
Addie glued her pig to the "mud" too.  We added a lined piece of writing paper so she could write about her pig. 
 Addie's Pig!
Reading Extension:  We read  Hungry Pig by Russell Julian
Oatmeal Canister Barn!
We covered an oatmeal canister with red construction paper.  You could paint the canister too.  Addie used white paint to make a door and window.  We made a cone shape for the top and attached it with tape. 
Reading Extension:  We read - Big Red Barn by Margaret Wise Brown
Farm Animal Number Writing
Math - number writing, number order
I printed a cow, pig and sheep from my computer and Addie wrote her numbers 1-12 onto each farm animal.  I cut the animals out and Addie glued the animals in number order onto the strip of paper. 

Old MacDonald Had a Farm

Draw or glue a red barn onto a brown lunch bag - I only had 2 greeting card bags and I was out of red construction paper!!  Cut out a white rectangle for the barn door and two, white squares for the window.  Use black marker to draw the details for the door and windows.  On separate pieces of card stock attach farm animal pictures and write the sounds  they make.  Place the cards in the "barn" bag.  Sing "Old MacDonald Had a Farm"  Choose a farm animal out of the bag for each verse!
