06. Down on the Farm (cc)

Here we take a nostalgic look at small, home-based farms, and the animals and sights common to a typical farm and barn setting of the past. Projects include: Scarecrow - One of the farmer's friends, scarecrows are still used to scare away birds that eat the seeds and flowers of certain plants. Our scarecrow has an interesting face and fun clothes. Aerial Farm Patterns - The view from above is one of the most fascinating looks at a farm. Crops are planted in uniform rows that create an interesting geometric pattern. Here we use paper and pastels to make our own layout. Farm Puppets - Cows, pigs, horses are some of the barnyard animals important to farm life and here we two kinds of paper puppets. Piggy Bank - Farms aren't complete without pigs. Our pig is a perfect bank for storing loose change. Hauling Beans - Watch bean seeds germinate before your eyes! In just 1-2 days you can see the bean sprout. The root starts down in search of food, while the plumule leaves shoot upward in search of sunshine. Hands-On Project 406 - Kids helping other kids through their crafts. 04/08DE/CC Closed-Captioned PI 30 min.
