The past two weeks, Mrs. Collin’s PreK students have been exploring the Farm. Some of the concepts they looked at are structures on a farm, different types of farms, and the many jobs a farmer has. This week they really delved into how cows are milked. In their classroom they made a “milking station” center. They filled gloves with milk, pricked tiny holes in the bottom, and the children squeezed the “utters” to fill the buckets with milk!
