Farm Day Information

Third grade's Farm Day will be Thursday, May 1st. First, we read Charlotte's Web. Now the students have been researching different farm animals for a few weeks. Some farm animals we are researching are pigs, horses, cows, and sheep. Students have created a poster of their farm animal. On their posters are fun/interesting facts about their farm animal. Each group also made up a song or a poem to go with their animal.
