Farm Lapbook

Wow, can't believe September has passed by so quickly.  Ds4 (my 3yo) and I studied about the farm this month.  It was a blast!  We read lots of books, did tons of coloring and even play-acted being farmers in the backyard with pretend and real tools.  And we compiled a lot of our endeavors into a lapbook. :)

Here are the books we used for our farm study.61G74HCS66L__SL160_AA115_ hw7 hw7CA1DYUS0 51BRE6D3QRL__SL160_PIsitb-dp-arrow,TopRight,21,-23_SH30_OU01_AA115_

Also a cute little book called Duffy On The Farm.  Some of the resources I used for this study were The Mailbox Thematic Unit for farms   TEC3185  and the farm and zoo lesson plans from Kinderplans.com

Here's the cover of ds's lapbook and what it looks like upon opening.  You open the barn door and see what large animals live on the farm, and you slide the strip across the hayloft and see what smaller animals live there. The barn outline and the pics of the animals are from Kinderplans, but I made up the little sliding thing.  There are little booklets about what baby animals live on the farm and what sounds farm animals make, as well as a math activity where he had to add the correct amount of spots to numbered cows.
