Learning about the organs included taking a peek at some brains and comparing them (as shown above) and actually touching & feeling some REAL animal organs. I spared you the photos on that, because it wasn't all that pretty. Students saw and touched a cow's head, heart and liver, as well as a sheep's head and a lamb's heart. Yes, there were many students that were squeamish!
This baby goat had climbed through the fence and was just hanging out on the tree! So cute!!!
It was feeding time for this pair of pigs and for the calf below.
Remember the baby goat that was on the tree? He climbed back into his pen to join his siblings.
By the time we got to these two big pigs, it was REALLY hot outside, and they were having a nice nap.
Have you ever made Gak before? Well, it's a perfect example to illustrate a chemical reaction for kids (and it's also fun)!
They mixed and mixed their solutions until Gak was created, and then they were prompted to make Gak sculptures as a contest for a treat from the snack bar. The Gak Farmer (photo on the right) was 1st runner up.
It was a good trip to the farm, and a great hands on field trip. =0)
That's a wrap! Thanks for reading, and happy Monday.
