Activity for How Farmers Learn What They Know

Your father, who has a small hog farm in Iowa, bought you a baby lamb for your 10th birthday. You know very little about how to raise a baby lamb, but you have decided to give it a try. Your goal is to get the lamb ready for the county fair which is six months away. You have sole responsibility for the lamb and its development.

  1. Find the names of these people and organizations.
  2. Contact them.
  3. Write a 1-2 page report on how you would raise a baby lamb in 6 months for the county fair to recieve a blue ribbon.
  4. Another option would be to make a diarama of your sheep pen for the fair.
