It’s winter! Nothing is growing in the ground, so life on the farm must slow down, right? In this homeschool lesson, we’ll explore what goes on in the winter on various types of farms.
The lesson and activities below are most appropriate for preschool through 2nd grade, but there’s lots of great information for all ages.
