Agriculture farms of today
often bear no resemblance to the typical farm and barn setting
of the past. We take a nostalgic look at small, home-based farms,
and the animals and sights common to that era of farming.
Scarecrow: One of
the farmer's friends, scarecrows are still used to scare away
birds that eat the seeds and flowers of certain plants. Our
scarecrow has an interesting face and fun clothes.
406-2 Aerial Farm Patterns: The view from above is one
of the most fascinating looks at a farm. Crops are planted in
uniform rows that crete an interesting geometric pattern. Use
paper and pastels to make your own layout.
406-3 Farm Puppets: Cows, pigs, horses - these are some
of the barnyard animals important to farm life. Make 2 kinds
of paper puppets for a fun look at farm animals.
Piggy Bank: Farms aren't
complete without pigs, notorious for being a very messy animal.
Our pig is actually very clean, and a perfect bank for storing
406-5 Hauling beans: Watch bean seeds germinate
before your eyes! In just 1-2 days you can see the bean sprout.
The root starts down in search of food, while the plumule, or
the embryo leaves shoot upward in search of sunshine.
