Giving Thanks for Farmers (K-2)

Downloads

Review activities that happen on the farm and animals that live there. Make the connection between farms and the food we eat each day, emphasizing the importance of community farms. Introduce letter writing, specifically thank you letters, and guide students in writing thank you letters to farmers in your county or region.

Need to Prepare

  • Choose local farmers in your community to give thanks to – perhaps from a farm you have visited, a farmer who sells at your local market, or a farmer who has visited your school or classroom. Prepare a brief description of the farmer and their farm to read to the students.
