1 Educational Activity Kit Meet the Farm Animals Kindergarten to Grade 2 Did you know that a sow carries her piglets for three months, three weeks, and three days? That a dairy cow can drink up to one bathtub full of water every day? Students use their senses to discover the characteristics and needs of dairy and beef cattle, sheep, pigs, horses, goats, chickens, and honeybees. What do they eat? Where do they live? Are all farm animals mammals? Why do pigs have hair and chickens have feathers? Students uncover the reasons why we raise these animals and explore the environment in which they live as you see, touch, hear, and smell our livestock.

4 HOW A CHICK HATCHES Make Your Own Booklet Colour each page. Cut them out, arrange them in order, and staple them at the top to make a booklet. How a Chick Hatches Name: The chick climbs out once the shell breaks apart. 4

5 MAKE YOUR OWN BOOKLET PAGE 2 Two hours later, the chick is fluffy and active. It will be fully grown in six months. The chick pecks at the shell until it is cracked all the way around. It takes twenty-one days for a chick embryo to grow inside a fertile egg. The chick only grows inside an egg that has been kept warm by a hen or in an incubator. 5

6 MAKE YOUR OWN BOOKLET PAGE 3 The chick is very tired from its work. It rests while its feathers dry. The chick pushes with its head and feet to widen the crack in the shell. The chick uses a special tooth on its beak called an egg tooth to peck a hole in the shell. This is very hard work for the chick and it rests often while it is hatching. 6

7 SENSES AT THE FARM Next to each picture write down which sense it describes. Explain how you will use that sense when visiting farm animals at the Canada Agriculture Museum. 7

8 MEET THE FARM ANIMALS Science and Technology FOR TEACHERS RABBIT MIRRORS The purpose of this activity is to help students realize that, just like them, rabbits react to their environment by modifying their behaviour and movements. Activity Group the children in pairs. In each pair, have one student play a rabbit, the other a mirror. First, the rabbits will move in any way a rabbit might, as long as they stay in one spot, and the mirrors copy their movements as closely as possible. Rabbits and mirrors then switch roles. Suggestions Before starting the game, review a rabbit s response to various stimuli; for example, if a rabbit is angry, it will stamp its feet. Other responses might be the following: fear remains perfectly still fear flattens ears back on its head curiosity wrinkles and wiggles nose listening ears straight up, moving backwards and forwards locomotion hopping If some children are reticent to be the leader in the team, choose the first leaders or be the leader yourself so all of the children will mirror your actions. Play segments of engaging music that might produce an emotional response. (For example, Flight of the Valkyries might solicit a fear response and children will flatten their rabbit ears back, or assume an immobile crouch; Air on a G String might elicit a listening response and children will raise their rabbit ears and move them forwards or backwards. 8

9 BODY PART MATCHING GAME Do you recognize which animal the body part belongs to? Draw a line to link each body part to the correct animal

11 MEET THE FARM ANIMALS Science and Technology FOR TEACHERS MAKE YOUR OWN FARM ANIMAL ENCYCLOPEDIA This activity introduces students to, or reinforces, the appropriate terms for the names of farm animals, their physical characteristics, and needs. It also prompts students to compare humans to animals Ask students to colour the animals on the encyclopedia pages before filling them out. Using construction paper, make a cover page featuring all the animals that live on a farm. Make the back page out of construction paper too, to protect the encyclopedia. Use the blank index card to make index cards for other animals that might live on a farm. Here are some examples: dog cat turkey duck emu pheasant goose wild boar deer caribou bison llama alpaca 4 Staple the pages together. 11

22 MEET THE FARM ANIMALS Science and Technology FOR TEACHERS MY FRIEND THE LAMB Imagine that your class has been given a lamb. What would this lamb need to survive? 1 2 Ask your students to prepare a list of the lamb s essential needs. They can begin by filling in the blanks in the My Friend the Lamb activity sheet with words or drawings. Make sure they think about all aspects of caring for a lamb: sheltering it, feeding it, keeping its bedding clean, etc. Ensure that students understand that lambs are not pets, and that they require special care. When students have identified what a lamb needs to survive, ask them to compare the needs of lambs and humans. Discuss the similarities and differences. For example, lambs and humans both need to be fed, but do they eat the same things? Will you take good care of me? 22

23 MY FRIEND THE LAMB Will you take good care of me? To survive, I need: To survive, I need: To survive, I need: To survive, I need: To survive, I need: To survive, I need: To survive, I need: To survive, I need: To survive, I need: To survive, I need: 23

The chews on the wax and leaves its cell. egg bee pupa larva 24

25 MEET THE FARM ANIMALS Science and Technology FOR TEACHERS THE GROCERY STORE During their visit to the Canada Agriculture Museum, students learn first-hand where their food comes from. Before or after the visit, ask students to bring in grocery flyers from home. Ask each student to cut out images of food that comes from a farm, and to glue the images on a piece of construction paper. Ask each student to present the images to the class and have the class decide what farm animal the food comes from. With older students, ask them to select food from each of the food groups: meat and alternatives, dairy products, fruits and vegetables, grains and legumes. Ask them which foods come from animals that live at the Canada Agriculture Museum. 25

26 MEET THE FARM ANIMALS Science and Technology FOR TEACHERS THE ANIMAL BY-PRODUCTS TREASURE HUNT Even though they are raised by humans to produce food, farm animals also supply us with a wide range of other products that we use every day. In this activity, students learn that their dependence on farm animals goes beyond food and that, all day long and without knowing it, they use by-products derived from animal husbandry. A by-product is a secondary product that results from the production of a primary product. Ask your students why humans raise farm animals. Explain that we use more than the meat, milk and eggs produced on the farm. Each part of an animal is recycled and used to make another product. The by-products of animal husbandry are all the products other than those for which the animal was raised. For example, on a farm where poultry is raised for eggs, the eggs are the product, while the poultry meat is a by-product. Using the Appendix, Farm Animal By-Products, ask students questions about animal by-products, and allow your students to reflect on the place these products occupy in their everyday lives. Discuss the important role that animal by-products play not only in objects used in everyday life pillows, purses, ceramics but also in medical research, the development of vaccines, cosmetics, hygiene products, etc. More than 350 pharmaceutical products alone are based on animal by-products. Treasure Hunt Hide a few objects made from animal by-products in the classroom (e.g., toothpaste, leather gloves, etc.). Have students work in pairs to find as many objects made from farm animals as they can, in the classroom and on their classmates. Set a time limit. When the time is up, compare answers. As a reward, the class could watch a film about farm animals (make sure you tell the class that animal fat is used in the making of the roll of film itself!) or have a snack that contains a by-product, such as gummy bears, marshmallows, or vegetables and dip (the gelatin found in candy and dips is an animal by-product). 26

27 CATTLE Cattle are mammals. They are also called ruminants because a bovine s stomach is divided into four compartments. You often see cattle lying down in the pasture chewing their cud that is the word for the partially digested wad of food that cattle bring up from the first stomach compartment (the rumen) to chew a second time. The female is called a cow, the male a bull, and the young a calf. Cattle have no front teeth on their top jaw. They have split hooves that are known as cloven hooves. Cattle come in a variety of colours. The cattle at the Canada Agriculture Museum have brown, white, grey, or black hair. Cattle live in barns, but are also at home out on the open range. Cattle eat grass, hay, and some grains. They can also drink as much as a bathtub full of water every day. Farmers and ranchers take care of cattle. Some breeds of cattle provide us with meat, in the form of beef. These are called beef cattle. Other breeds of cattle provide us with milk. These are known as dairy cattle. 27

28 SHEEP Like cows, sheep are mammals and ruminants. They also lie down to chew their cud. In the sheep family the female is called a ewe, the male a ram, and the young a lamb. The mother gives milk to her baby. She has two teats. Their hooves are split in two and are called cloven hooves. Their bodies are covered with wool, which is usually white, black, or brown. They have no top front teeth. A sheep defends itself by bucking with its head. Most sheep breeds are polled, which means they have no horns. Sheep live in a sheep barn, but are also at home out on the open range. They eat grass and hay. The people who take care of the flock of sheep are often called shepherds or shepherdesses. Sheep are gentle animals. In Canada, farmers keep sheep mostly for meat and sometimes for wool or milk. 28

29 HORSES The female horse is called a mare, the male a stallion or gelding (castrated male), and the young a foal. This is the horse family. Horses are mammals. The mare feeds her foal milk from her udder. Horses are large, strong, and intelligent animals. Their bodies are covered with short and long hairs. The long hair is on the tail, the mane, and, on some breeds, the hooves. The horse s foot is called a hoof and it is round. Horses wear metal horseshoes, which are attached with nails, to protect their hooves. Horses live in barns and stables although, in some parts of the world, horses do roam free on the land. Horses eat hay and oats. A horse s job on the farm could be to pull ploughs and wagons in summer, pull sleighs in the winter, or carry horseback riders. At the Canada Agriculture Museum, the horses pull a wagon. 29

30 SWINE The female is called a a sow (rhymes with cow), the male a boar and the young are called piglets. This is the swine family. Pigs are mammals. The mother gives birth to a litter of piglets. They receive milk from the sow s teats. Pigs are born in a farrowing crate where they are kept warm, and close to their mother. A pig s skin is usually pink, but it also can be brown or black, depending on the breed. A pig s skin is covered with bristly hairs. A pig s snout is round and flat, which makes it useful for digging for bugs and roots in the soil. A pig s tail is curly when it is healthy. When pigs are happy, they wag their tails like dogs do. A pig s hooves are split and pointed. A pig s body is long and low to the ground on its four relatively short legs. Pigs are very clever they roll in the mud to keep cool and to prevent themselves from sunburn. Pigs live in a pig barn where they are kept cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Pigs enjoy a diet of grains such as corn. 30

31 MEET THE FARM ANIMALS Language FOR TEACHERS TRUTH AND FICTION Animals are often portrayed as having human characteristics or stereotypical characteristics in books and movies. Read a story book such as Sheep in a Shop (Nancy Shaw, Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1991). Discuss those aspects of the way the sheep are depicted that are accurate, and those that are not. Ask your students if they have seen movies or cartoons with farm animals. Discuss the factual and fictional aspects of animal representations in these. 31

35 MEET THE FARM ANIMALS Mathematics FOR TEACHERS MEASURING A HORSE Horses are measured in hands (palm width), a unit that is equivalent to ten centimetres. Have each student trace their hand on a piece of paper, then cut it out. Measure each student with their own hand and record how many hands high they are. A horse s height is measured from the ground to its withers, which corresponds to the shoulders on a human, so be sure to measure the students the same way. Use the hand cutouts to decorate the classroom. height measurement 35
