Topic Mini-Research Real World Activity

Imagine you are a farmer. You have a huge farm full of animals and it is your job every morning to get up really early and feed all the animals. Draw a picture with each kind of animal on your farm. You only need to draw one for each group of animals since you feed the group at the same time. Remember that each animal on the farm has a specific purpose. This is why it is very important to feed each and every one and not forget any of them. If they do not get to eat, it will be hard for them to do their jobs for the day. When you work on a farm you need all the help from the animals you can get! Incase you need help remembering all those animals on your farm, visit this website about all the farm animals and it will remind you.

3) Start creating your farm drawing. Remember not to forget any of the animals on your farm!
4) When you are finished, give the drawing to your teacher and tell her what each animal is so she can label them for you. Then, your teacher will put your picture on the Internet.
