                                 Scenario Mission
  Let's imagine that you are a farmer on a south Georgia farm.  You have a friend from a big city who is coming to stay with you.  Your friend wants to know what kinds of animals you have on your farm.  However, he is handicapped.  His wheelchair can not roll around your farm.  So you will need to draw pictures of the different animals on your farm.
  Some of the animals your friend is interested in are sheep, chickens, cows, pigs, and goats.  He wants to be able to tell his friends in the city about the animals on a south Georgia farm. You will have to draw pictures of these animals for your friend.  Be sure to draw a picture of a sheep, chicken, cow, pig, and goat.
  Good luck and have fun!!!
