Mrs. Melander from San Francisco CA is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

City Kids Visit a Country Farm

My students need to experience a working farm first-hand to better understand how the food they eat arrives on their table.

My Students

These city kids have many opportunities to enjoy wonderful adventures here in our community, but they may not have had the chance to touch a wool sweater on the hoof (sheep) or feel a freshly laid egg. Have you?

We have a curious bunch of second graders who regularly experience big city living, miles away from any farm.

Two second grade classes will have this opportunity to learn about the food and animals found on a working farm. As a large public school in a multicultural city, we have a diverse population of students and families from all over the world. Some of our students are English language learners. This would be an excellent hands-on adventure for all of these deserving children.

My Project

Our students will visit an educational working farm. They will tour the garden as they learn about the importance of plants and find out which parts provide the food we eat. Then, students will visit with the animals living on the farm including cows, chickens, pigs, goats, and sheep.

They will discover how a farmer cares for animals and what the animals give us, next they will sample freshly grown food from different parts of the plants in the garden.

Children living in a large city may not have this kind of opportunity to learn about where and how their food is grown. It is exciting to watch as students feed the chickens for the first time or to see their delight as they pet a newborn lamb!
