Student Instructions

👀Teacher Introduction: 🗣 Farms🐑🌾 are places where people grow food and raise animals. Almost all the food we eat, whether it's a shiny apple, a crunchy carrot, a fresh egg or a glass of milk, comes from a farm. There are different kinds of farms. Some farms grow things like fruits, vegetables, grains, and nuts. Fields may be full of corn or apple trees loaded with red apples. There are farms that grow wheat, tomatoes, lettuce and loads of other fruits and vegetables. Other farms are where animals live. Here you might see cows in a field eating grass, pigs rolling in the mud, sheep grazing all day long or chickens pecking around. Farms are really amazing places. They give us our food, help people in our communities have jobs, and teach us about how important it is to take care of the Earth. Lets watch👀 the videos and answer some questions about what we learnt. When you are ready to add a response to seesaw- #page 1: What is Farming? Use this page to give a definition and examples.
