Mission Project
Imagine that you are a farmer.  What kind of animals would you like to have on your farm?  Let's look and see why these animals are on a farm and what they do on the farm.  Why are these animals so important to the farmer?  We will look at different farm animals and you will pick 2 animals that you think would be important to you if you were a farmer.  Then draw a picture of the two animals you picked and then tell me why you picked those 2 animals.

Mission Steps
1. Visit the website that tells us what different animals are on a farm and what those animals do.

2. What are some of the animals that you saw and read about?  Think back to the animals that you liked the best and think about what they did on the farm.  Pick out 2 animals that you would want on your farm.

3.  When you have decided what animals you want on your farm, draw a picture of these animals. Tell your teacher why you picked these animals.  Your teacher will write down on the back of your paper why you picked these animals.

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