Our Farm Needs Animals!

 

Introduction:  
  Farm animals are very important to us. They provide us with healthy food for our bodies. In order for our farm animals to take care of us, we must properly take care of them.
Task:  
  Your assignment is to find out what kind of house we need for our animal, and what kind of food we should feed them. You will work in groups to learn about farm animals.
