Art Barn

We had a great time on our field trip! We learned about chickens and roosters and baby chicks and ducks. We got to groom donkeys, sheep, goats, and look at pigs ( we didn’t want them to nibble our fingers). We learned about honey bees:their queen, drones, guards, and worker bees. We took a ride around the farm and learned about how they turn manure into soil. We also painted pigs!
