Storytime at the Farm

Hours and Location

Storytime at the Farm

A woman wearing a face mask kneels on a yoga mat on the grass. She is reaching for a grey rooster who stands next to her on the mat; a series of toys are arranged around them.

Join us for a fun virtual adventure on the farm!  This interactive story comes to life through movement, song and rhyme. Students will stretch their bodies and minds as they experience a day on the farm from sunrise to sunset.  Students also learn breathing techniques, mindfulness exercises and meet a few farm animal friends.

Note: This program is virtual via Zoom.

Teacher tips

For this program students will be led through gentle stretches and movements. Please ensure there is lots of space in the classroom (push aside any tables, chairs, and desks) for the students to move around comfortably (a carpeted area works best). All exercises will be done on the spot where they are sitting.

An educator from the museum will connect with your classroom using Zoom videoconferencing. Through your web camera and the chat feature, the educator will see and interact with the students throughout the session. See the attached document for tips and tricks for connecting with your class.
