Kentucky Farms Feed Me Virtual Field Trips
Take your students on a virtual field trip through our Kentucky Farms Feed Me Virtual Field Trip Series. Visit eight Kentucky farms through each video. The videos work great on their own, but there is also a collection of science, social studies, reading, math, practical living and vocational studies activities for various grade levels that correspond with the videos. Consider having a #FarmFriday this fall, and take a field trip each week!
The Farm as an Ecosystem
Students will learn how a farm is an ecosystem, identify the parts of the farm ecosystem and how they interact and depend on one another, identify the producers and consumers in a farm ecosystem, model the food chain/food web within a farm ecosystem, learn how changes affect the farm ecosystem and availability of food, identify the natural resources in a farm ecosystem and ways to protect them, and understand the size of their personal ecosystem. Sponsored teachers receive all materials for this lesson.
