This domain will introduce students to several farm animals as well as to crops that people grow on farms. Students will learn how farmers meet the needs of farm animals. You should have already taught the Plants domain, so students will make the connection that animals need food, water, and space to live and grow—just as plants do. Students will be able to contrast how plants make their own food with how animals get their food from eating plants or other living things. Students will understand the importance of farms as a source of food and other products people use. Students will also become familiar with the classic story “The Little Red Hen,” which introduces the seasonal rhythm of planting, growing, and harvesting.
