Farm-themed play dough activity set to enjoy with your students. This unique 3-D set-up is guaranteed to catch your students’ attention! Along with the farm scene for play dough there are many skills that your students can practice such as patterns, sorting, reading/writing/tracing, matching, greater than/less than, shortest/tallest, counting to 10, counting to five, matching mothers to babies and more!
Students will get opportunities to work on fine-motor skills while creating farm scenes with play dough, using clothespins, drawing and writing.
QR code-enabled conversation & inquiry-based task cards are included. When scanned, the QR codes will read the task cards for the students allowing for independent exploration. Some questions have a definitive answer such as “Which farmer is the tallest?” and some have more open-ended explorations, such as “Which farmer is different? Why?” This question has multiple answers: the girl is different because the other two are boys, the boy without the pitchfork is different because the other two have pitchforks, or whatever other differences the students can find.

I highly recommend printing on card stock and/or laminating most pieces for durability. The farm scenery will not be as useful if it is not laminated.
