Barn Building

A barn is usually found on a farm.

These special buildings are mostly used for housing animals, storing grain or hay, or keeping equipment.

This open-ended activity enabled our students to construct their own barns.

We first used red blocks (placed on green rice which simulated grass), and then red panels.

Before beginning, students learned that if it’s cold or raining, the barn is a safe and dry place for the farmer’s animals to sleep.

The concept of a barn is central to our farm theme, so it was important that your little one use a variety of materials to create their own version of it!

To further incorporate the many uses of a barn, we also read a story about how a barn is used to store supplies such as grain and hay. Lastly, we sang a song about the color red during circle time because barns are red!
