In this program, your students will smell, touch, observe and listen to farm animal, up close and personal! Each animal—whether rabbit, chicken, honeybee or cow—has its own characteristics and needs. Students will explore the animals’ environments, their lifecycles, and why we raise them. Students will also have a chance to handle some farming tools.
