I understand the concentration span is shorter in the younger children, so aim the visits to suit. I will not expect the children to sit and listen to me talk but offer a more interactive visit.
Farm Animal Visit
The animals are set up within barriers/pens in your safe outdoor area for the children to look at, touch and explore at their own pace.
Can include activities including milking demonstration with a rubber glove, drawing materials, farm story books, wool plaiting
Small Animal Visit
The animals are brought inside in their own carry cases and taken out one by one for the children to look at while sitting round a table making models with saltdough/clay/pipecleaners or drawing.
+ Bugs and reptiles
+ Small mammals
