Do you know what sounds the farm animals make? In the story Elmo on the Farm,  Elmo visits Old Macdonald's farm to help out for the day. See if you can help him learn about animal sounds.

Mission Project
 
    Today you will pretend that you are all grown up and that you have your own farm. What kind of animals do you want to live on your farm? Let's look at the different types of animals and what they do! After we look at the different animals that live on the farm, you will pick two that you want to live on your farm. We will write about these animals in our journals and then draw a picture of them. We will put our journal pages in the hall for all of your friends to see what you have on your farm!
