Down on The Farm
All farm animals need lots of clean fresh water to drink, stay healthy and be productive. Dairy cows especially need lots of water to help them produce milk. Become a part of our 1914 farm family and discover your role "down on the farm."
Heritage and Citizenship, Grade 3 (Early Settlements in Upper Canada)
Students investigate and describe the communities of early settlers and First Nation peoples in Upper Canada around 1800. Students also compare communities of the past with those of the present.
- use a variety of resources and tools to gather, process, and communicate information about interactions between new settlers and existing communities, including First Nation peoples, and the impact of factors such as heritage, natural resources, and climate on the development of early settler communities;
- compare aspects of life in early settler communities and present-day communities.
Life Systems, Grade 4 (Habitats and Communities)
Plants and animals are interdependent and are adapted to meet their needs from the resources available in their particular habitats.
Changes to habitats (whether by nature or human means) can affect plants and animals and the relationship between them.
Society relies on plants and animals
- analyse the effects of human activities on habitats and communities;
- investigate the interdependence of plants and animals within specific habitats and communities;
- demonstrate an understanding of habitats and communities and the relationship among the plants and animals that live in them
