Event Overview: Meet Farmer Michelle Lyons!

In this lesson students will learn about living things, life cycles, basic needs and how animals grow and change by discovering how farmers look after the animals on their farms. They will identify items in a healthy packed lunch and discuss where they came from. Students will role-play the different jobs on a farm and complete interactive quizzes, as well as speak directly to guest farmers and ask any questions they have about life on a farm.
