Farm Play Center.
Hansen, Linda; And Others
Because many cultures celebrate a harvest time or festival with which many children can identify, this farm preschool curriculum unit is appropriate for a cross-cultural setting. The farm unit is introduced to children through a field trip to a local farm, with children having the opportunity for experiential learning. The farm may be integrated into various curriculum areas in the classroom and the playground may be transformed into a child-size farm. Children's multicultural and individual experiences are easily incorporated into the farm theme and activities can be adapted to meet the needs of all children. The bulk of this document describes the 23 farm-related activities for nine centers, including science, art, and cooking. Each activity plan lists the center involved, the class, the materials needed; and describes the child's role and procedures, the teacher's role and questions, and adaptations and comments. (KDFB)
