Meet the Farm Animals

Program Description

Come smell, touch, listen, and observe farm animals – up close and personal! Whether rabbit, chicken, honeybee or cow, each animal has its own characteristics and needs. Let your students explore the animals’ environments, their lifecycles and why we raise them. Students also have the chance to handle some farming tools.
