Farm Hands On Activities for Preschool

Farm Hands On Activities for Preschool
Farm Activities were created with preschool in mind. This unit would also work well in a kindergarten classroom. The boys and girls will learn important math, literacy and book comprehension concepts, strategies and skills through book/fact centered lessons and activities. The lesson plans are ready, all you need to do is find the popular books on your shelf and print/prep the easy to prep projects and activities. I have also included several learning tub activities that are ready to go and several centers and activity ideas that would be easy to implement. Students will have a blast with this fun unit!

Day 1:    To introduce the farm and farm animals we read, Big Red Barn, by Margaret Wise Brown.  Then, we take turns placing farm animal pictures under the farm label.  Finally, we make our own Big Red Barn.  Inside the barn they boys and girls will draw a picture of their favorite farm animal.  They will tell a friend 3 clues and the friend will have to guess what is inside the barn.

 

Day 2:  Read, Old MacDonald Had a Farm by Holly Berry or your favorite Old MacDonald book.  Then, demonstrate how to sing the song using the song sticks.  Finally, the boys and girls will make their own song puppets.
Day 3:  First we read, I Heard Said the Bird by Poly Berrien Berends.  This book is about baby animals on the farm.  After reading the book and discussing animal moms and babies, the boys and girls can help complete the mom and baby puzzles.  Then, they will make a hen and baby number craft.
Day 4:  We discussed products that come from a farm.  A fun small group center is a milk tasting center.  The boys and girls can try chocolate, white milk and strawberry flavored milk.  Then, they will write their name under their favorite flavor.  Finally, they will make a mama cow craft.

 


Day 5:  First we read the book, Stuck in the Mud  by Jane Clarke.  Then, in large group the boys and girls can help retell the story using the story sequencing cards.  Finally, they will use hay to paint “mud” on their pig.
