Harvest Festival Mrs. Wishy Washy

At the end of our farm unit we celebrate with a Harvest Festival.  Everyone dresses up like a farm animal, farmer, cowboy, or like me, Mrs. Wishy Washy.  The children are always so excited about dressing up.

We take pictures, eat a special snack, and do arts and crafts.  It's a lot of work, but so much fun. At the end of the day I was exhausted.  Nothing like the week of Thanksgiving to recoup.

Turkeys in Disguise

We had a family project to disguise a turkey to save him from Thanksgiving dinner.  The students took home a turkey pattern and had to work with their family to disguise him.  The day they brought them in we read Turkey Trouble.

Farm Animal Projects

Students completed a home project with their families.  They chose a farm animal and had to decorate it using various materials.  There were so many creative and unique ideas.  Students loved sharing them.

They also completed a farm animal report.  They had to name their farm animal, tell what the animal likes to do, eat, and what noise the animal makes. Both the animal pattern and the animal farm report can be found in my farm packet.

On the Farm Part 2

While learning about the animals on the farm, we had a milk taste test.  We tasted chocolate milk, strawberry milk, and white milk.  We then created a graph sharing which flavor was our favorite.

On the Farm

We started our farm unit last week.  The first week we focused on animals that live on the farm and what they provide for us.  We did a series of TLC art projects creating various farm animals.

We made butter in baby food jars.  One of my students said, "We're making butter? I thought cows made butter."

It was a lot of fun.  They really had no idea what to expect.  They were told to shake the jars and find out what happens.

It takes a lot of concentration to make butter.

A firm grip on the jar is essential.

The joy of all of our shaking is here.

They gobbled all of the butter and crackers up.  So much fun!
