October is Farm Month in Preparatory Kindergarten. The first week we are focusing on farm animals, specifically cows, horses, sheep, pigs and chickens. Each afternoon we learn some cool facts about an animal and then do a project about the animal. So far our favorite facts are that cows have four stomachs and horses can sleep standing up.
Today was sheep day. We learned that sheep live in flocks, because they do not like to be alone. We also learned that sheep have wool to keep them warm when it is cold out. In the spring, when it is warm the sheep are sheared. We can then use their wool to make blankets or clothes. We made our own sheep today using cotton balls. We then wrote one thing we learned about sheep underneath our sheep.
