Unit 3 – Complex farm visits and Long-term projects
On the one hand there are short farm visits, which are organized as half- or whole day-activities. On the other hand, there are so-called long-term -school projects, which have the goal to make the effect of the farm visit more sustainable. Therefore, some groups visit the farm several times a year to connect with the topic in an emotional way or a whole school visits the organic farm and creates a market at school to deepen the learned things.
It is also useful to have a preparation at school before the farm visit and a post processing at school after the farm visit. Because then learning in and out of school is connected very well. In this unit there are some examples for complex and connected farm visits. These farm visits are a connection to the lessons in school and can be presented on project days at school.
In this unit I will learn how to:
- make the farm visit more sustainable
- set up an emotional bond of the children to the topic
- structure complex different farm visits
In this unit you will get to know complex farm visits on examples and how they can be connected with school lessons and project days at school.
