Reading Adventure Pack: Farms

A Reading Adventure Pack features a fiction and nonfiction text—The Oxcart Man by Donald Hall and illustrated by Barbara Cooney and Farming by Gail Gibbons. Following the readings, scholars make a collage showcasing foods farmed from field crops. They examine their meals to identify how their food was grown, then browse their pantry to search for items from a farm. Finally, learners use their imagination and toys to set up a farm.
