Both templates have room for the date and then writing – either primary lines or writing lines. CLICK on the Learning Log below to download your templates:
After students have learned about farm animals, have them construct a farming to-do list that needs to be followed in order to take care of the animals. Have students think about what the animals need for food, water, shelter, exercise, etc.
Daily Activity Report
Assign a different student each day to give a farm activity report. Students imagine that they are living on a farm and they report what they did for the day. They can present the information in any format they would like – poster, oral presentation, etc.
Farm Animal Acrostic Poems
Below are five acrostic poems templates for a cow, pig, horse, sheep and a goat. Let students choose the farm animal they would like to focus on in their poems. Students can write a word, phrase, or sentence that starts with each letter of the farm animal.
