ALL ABOUT FARM ANIMALS
Grades 2 and 3
By Margaret Pierciey
Once you have chosen a farm animal, you may want to begin your research
by looking up key words such as farming, animals, or agriculture. In
addition, you will probably need to research your specific animal name, such
as, chicken, cow or cattle, horse, pig or whatever animal you may have.
Please remember to ask your teacher or a librarian if you need help.
