Mission  Project
Pretend that you are a farmer.  What animals do you need on your farm?  Look at the websites at some of the animals and what they do.  Why would these animals be useful on your farm?  You are going to choose 2 animals that you will be using on your farm.  Then you will draw a picture of the animals and tell me why you chose them.

Mission Steps

   1.  Visit the website that tells us about all the farm animals and why they are useful to us.

   2.  What are some of the animals that you saw on the site?  What were some of the things that               they did?  Think about the two animals that you liked the best.  Pick two animals that you             would want on your farm.

   3. Now that you have chosen your two animals, draw a picture of them on the farm.  Tell your         teacher why you chose those two animals.  Your teacher will write why you chose the two             animals on the back of your drawing.

   4.  Give your papers to your teacher and she will publish them on the internet.
