    Okay Kids.  Its time to go on an imaginary field trip to Farmer Dan's farm.  I want you all to be on your best behavior.  As we arrived on the farm, Farmer Dan was running around screaming for help.  When we asked him what was wrong, he told us that all of his farm animals got loose on the farm.  He asked us to help him gather all the animals back up and to make sure that the babies are back with their mothers.  As we gather the animals we will learn the difference between the baby animals and the mothers, and also what the baby animals are called.  Need some help? Click here to learn what the animals are called to help them get home!
