After our recent field trip to a farm,
it was the perfect time to start a preschool farm unit study.
The first day I dressed our son in his "Daddy's Little Helper" shirt.
Then, we spent the next several weeks of our preschool lesson time
delving into farms. He loved learning all about farms.
Now that our unit study is over,
I thought I would compile all the resources in one post.
Below I have listed our resources and projects
for those of you considering a unit on farms.
Links are included wherever possible.
