These farm animal activities will make learning about farm animals fun and engaging!
This unit is packed full of close reading activities, directed drawings, writing, a craft, and more! Students learn about the different animals they may find on a farm with these farm animal activities.
Chit chat messages and the informational texts are included for cows, pigs, chickens, and sheep.
In addition, I’ve added farm animal activities for ducks, horses, and goats that you can pair with any nonfiction book.
I like displaying the books on the smartboard and having students interact as much as possible. To show their learning, students write facts about farm animals.
Then, we complete an interactive chit chat message to build comprehension. You can practice fact and fiction with this activity.
Seriously, we could do farm activities all year long!
I think that’s why putting together this collection of preschool farm theme activities was so much fun. After a visit to a local farm in the fall, we plan a farm theme with our preschoolers.
