    On a farm you can find barns, animals, machinery, and fields.

    Animals can make various sounds.

    “The Animals on the Farm”

    Noisy Farm

    We will use playdough and plastic farm animals.  We will listen to farm animal sounds on our iPad and guess which animal is making the sound.

    Changes to the Environment

    In the dramatic play area we will find a farm area with barns, animals, and machinery.  For art play we will use farm animal stampers.  For sensory play we will explore grain in the sensory table with scoopers, silos and animals.  We will add farm animals to our block area for construction play.  For small motor play we will categorize animals by types and by colors and for large motor play we’ll play a farm animal bean bag toss.
