Farm Animals + Discovery Barn (1 hour)

In the springtime we celebrate new life on the farm with babies being born (or hatched) every week. The children will have an opportunity to hold and/or pet various farm animals. The children experience hands-on activities teaching them about animals and the food that is grown or raised on the farm.

Lifecycle + Planting (1 hour)

The students will participate in a fun skit on the life cycle of corn. The interactive skit includes the importance of the sun and rain to help plants grow and the use of farm machinery to prepare the soil and harvest the crop. Then in small groups the students will build an ideal environment to grow a plant. They will be given a map of the Ranch to help locate the necessary ingredients (Bedrock, subsoil, topsoil, soil organisms, seed, and water). Each student can take their planted seed home.

Playground (1 - 2 hours)

Students will enjoy free time to play, scheduled in their day. Our playground has various activities, including pedal carts, ziplines, moo maze, duck races, boxcars, & more!

Curriculum Requirements

Overall Expectations for Kindergarten:

  • 14. demonstrate an awareness of the natural and built environment through hands-on investigations, observations, questions, and representations of their findings
  • 29. demonstrate an understanding of the natural world and the need to care for and respect the environment

Grade 1 Science and Technology: Understanding Life Systems

  • 1.2 describe changes or problems that could result from the loss of some kinds of living things that are part of everyday life
  • 3.2 identify the physical characteristics of a variety of plants and animals
  • 3.4 describe the characteristics of a healthy environment, including clean air and water and
    nutritious food, and explain why it is important for all living things to have a healthy environment

Grade 2 Science and Technology: Understanding Life Systems

  •  2.1 follow established safety procedures and humane practices specific to the care and handling of live animals, where appropriate, during science and technology investigations
  • 2.2 observe and compare the physical characteristics(e.g., fur or feathers; two legs or no legs) and the behavioural characteristics (e.g., predator or prey) of a variety of animals, including insects, using student-generated questions and a variety of methods and resources

Grade 3 Science and Technology: Understanding Life Systems

  • 3.6 describe ways in which plants and animals depend on each other (e.g., plants provide food for energy; animals help disperse pollen and seeds, and provide manure that fertilizes the soil in which plants grow; plants need the carbon dioxide that animals breathe out, and animals need the oxygen that plants release into the air)
  • 3.8 identify examples of environmental conditions that may threaten plant and animal survival (e.g., extreme heat and cold; floods and/or droughts; changes in habitat because of human activities such as construction, use of gas-powered personal watercraft on lakes)
