Pork encompases so many delicious foods that we enjoy all the time — things like pork chops, ham, sausage, and of course, bacon. But pigs are dirty, stinky, and gross, right? In this month’s lesson, we will explore what a pig farm is really like, and all of the wonderful things pigs bring us.
The lesson and activities below are most appropriate for preschool through 2nd grade, but there’s lots of great information for all ages.
