Who Needs What?

Farm Animal Needs and Habitats

 

Welcome to our World of Wonders Series! This page is perfect for learning about our farm animals’ needs and habitats. Get ready to look for patterns as we explore Life Science concepts. Start with our welcome video – join us and sing along.

Welcome to Hidden Villa! Did you check for your farm tools?

 

Your farm tools for touching, smelling, feeling, looking, and tasting are very important for exploring the world around you. Lets learn more about how we can use our farm tools to make observations, ask questions, and make connections.

 


 

I Notice, I Wonder…

Lets practice using our prompts!

1. First make observations using, “I notice…”

2. Now lets ask some questions about an object using, “I wonder…”

3. Finally lets pull everything together and make some connections using, “it reminds me of…”

These are the essential tools of a scientist!

Lambs, oh my!

All living organisms need four things to live, including sheep! Those things are food, water, shelter and space. At Hidden Villa we make sure all of our animals have those four things to make sure they live a happy and healthy life!

Goofy Goats

All the farm animals at Hidden Villa are provided with the four things they need to survive: food, shelter, water, and space. When we take good care of the goats by giving them these four things, there are many things they will give us in return.

Chatting about Chickens

Chickens have four basic needs: food, water, shelter and space. When chickens’ needs are met, they are able to live healthy lives. We can be thankful for chickens for their eggs, feathers and meat!

Teacher’s Corner

 

Dear Teachers and Parents/Guardians using these resources,

We have made students guides for many of our W.O.W. Video series. Each student guide contains a section called:

  • “Know it all” meant as a comprehension corner with questions that have varying levels of difficulty related to the video.
  • “Digging Deeper” that will include links and resources to learn more about the topic(s) addressed in the video.
  • ”Try it” through a variety of activities meant to encourage learning away from the computer. These may be observation activities, crafts, games, writing prompts, or other creative activities supporting NGSS and video topics.

In creating these guides our intention was to allow a scope of options for educators to choose from that will best support their learners’ needs. Stay tuned for the roll out of our Student Worksheets.
