May Nature Seekers 4 H Meeting

Yesterday was our May Nature Seekers 4 H meeting.  I had wanted to do something in the area of animal science and some club members have a hobby farm, so they gave us a tour of their farm.

While we were there we talked a lot about the different types of farms and the purpose of farming.


Then we started the tour.  First we saw parts of the garden.




Then we saw the chickens and the cow.





Next we learned about sheep.






And last we learned about horses and had an opportunity to ride one!







The tour took about an hour and afterwards the children had a snack of ice cream cones and animal crackers.



Instead of a hands on activity, I gave each of the kids 2 books on different farm animals that I had bought from Oriental Trading.

It was a great meeting!
