Mission Activity

Imagine that you work on a farm taking care of all the animals.  Today is a very special day on the farm because you will have children visiting for a field trip.  Your task is to take the children on a tour to see the many different animals that are raised on the farm.   In order to prepare for giving the tour, you must go to the Kiddyhouse website and learn all you can about the first animal that you will show- the duck.  You will make a tour guide about the goats to give to your students.

Mission Steps
1)  First you must go to the Kiddyhouse website and find the link for ducks.

2)  After finding the link, you should draw a picture of a duck on paper and color it so    
     your students will know what a duck looks like.  Do not forget to draw the webbed    

3)  Next, you should explore the duck page and find out another name for ducks, how 
     long they live, and one thing that makes ducks special.  You could also write down    
     what ducks say. You should write these three things under the picture of your duck.

4)  Now you are ready to show your guide to your classmates and instructor.  Good   
     Job!  Mission Accomplished!
