Week 5: On the Farm / En la Granja
Children will enjoy learning the Spanish names of farm animals as we turn our classroom into a farm! Students will work together like bees (abejas) as we build a barn, stables, and a home for each animal. Through song, role-play, and Total Physical Response (TPR) storytelling, students will learn about each animal, its needs, and why it has a place on the farm (provides milk, eggs, wool, etc.). We’ll examine the different animals found on different farms through the Americas and the Spanish-speaking world. To make the learning first-hand, a live ‘petting zoo’ will be brought to the class with fluffy and cuddly animals for children to observe and touch.
