Farm Trip to Melbye's...

On Thursday, May 15th our class will go to Blake Melbye's farm west of Thief River Falls.  We will be gone from about 11:45-2:15pm.  It is encouraged to wear pants, tennis shoes or water boots, and a sweatshirt.  We will go unless it is raining.  The bus will take us there and pick us up.  We will tour the farm, learn about the different animals, and have a snack (surprise!!).  It will be a GREAT day!

We will learn about different animals and ADawn and Blake made a list of specific proper animal names for us to talk about before we arrive.  We will add these to our Spelling Notebook, too! 
Here is the list ...

Ewe - female sheep
Ram - male sheep
Sow - female pig
Barrow- male pig
Lamb - baby sheep
Foal - baby horse
Piglet - baby pig
Mare - female horse
Gelding - male horse
Hen - female chicken
Rooster - male chicken
