We started off our unit by identifying various farm animals. We have begun to create our "farm scene" by first adding some pictures of our favorite farm animals on a piece of paper.
This is our farm sensory bin. The children enjoyed raking through the soil to find, identify, and match different farm animals.
The children also participated in constructive, pretend play in our block center. They worked to identify farm animals and act out appropriate sounds of such animals. The preschoolers also constructed fences, houses, a sty, pond, etc. with blocks to further build on their understanding of what a farm includes as it relates to farm animals.
We also played Farm Animal Concentration to further encourage identifying farm animals and their sounds.
