Going to a farm is one of my favorite field trips ever! Seeing the excitement in each student’s face is absolutely priceless. You honestly cannot beat it. Prior to our farm field trips, I always spend at least a week prior to learning about farms. One of my favorite ways to do this is by reading farm books. Here are my 12 favorite farm books.
