Ask a Farmer Series: Online for Kids
April 23, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 2:45 pm
An event every week that begins at 2:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until June 4, 2020
Join us on Zoom on Thursdays at 2pm as we explore farming, food, animals, ecology, cooking and more. Each week we explore a new farm theme, encouraging kids to investigate and explore life on a working farm from inside their living rooms. Topics may include growing vegetables, milking cows, raising chickens, cooking with local ingredients, or caring for the land for both domestic and wild creatures.
Appleton Farms Education Manager, Ashley, will guide students to think inquisitively, introducing each topic through educational content and guided video tours. Students will spend time formulating and writing down their questions and takeaways. Each session will conclude with a Q&A where kids can ask the farmers and other experts their questions.
This program is best suited for students 2nd-5th grade, but we welcome families of all ages to join. At the end of each session we will offer you ideas for follow up activities to help you extend your learning! Please come prepared with a pencil and paper.
Join our series via Zoom. Zoom is an online video conferencing tool you can access from your computer or phone.
