Procedural Activities: I will gain the kidsí attention by singing "Farm Animals Song".  

The first thing I will have the students do is create a picture of what they see when they hear the word "farm". Then we will talk about the animals that live on a farm. I will ask for volunteers to help me act out a song, "Old McDonald." Each student will draw an animal out of the "barn", then sing the song correlating each animal to their respective sound. Before singing the first song again, as a class, we will come up with actions for each animal. The students will then make a drawing of their favorite animal that was in the barn.

Attachments: I will know if the students understood the material by their actions. If the students can sing along with the song using the appropriate actions, then I will be able to get a glimpse of how they view animals and how they interoperate the way animals maneuver.
