National Agriculture Week - Class Visit
Last week was National Agriculture Week and Maci and I visited Quentin's 1st grade classroom to talk about farming. We told them about the things we have and do on our farm. We brought along a duck and a chicken egg. The duck egg brought lots of questions and so did the brown chicken egg. We also brought some of our farm toys. We brought a tractor, round baler, mower/conditioner and a semi with a grain trailer. The mower/conditioner really stumped them. One little boy knew what it did, but he couldn't think of what it was called...pretty good anyway. Then we read them a story about farm animals and gave them all a kids farm magazine. The magazine was Little Green. Quentin has a subscription to Little Green and he really enjoys it. The people at Little Green were so kind to donate enough for his whole class. They were all SO excited when they got their magazines.
Hello, I'm Christi! I live on an Iowa farm complete with kids, cattle and corn! My husband, Ryan, and I have been married for 12 years and we have two children. With the kids, animals and crops our days are always an adventure!
