Welcome to Farm School!

Farm School

Elementary Science course based on National Ag in the Classroom Curriculum

  • Kindergarten through 2nd grade will meet every Monday 10a-11a. Their lessons will be age-appropriate science activities to engage their young brains.
  • 3rd grade-5th grade will meet every Monday 12pm-2pm. These lessons are a little more challenging to encourage thought, and exploration in various agriculture themes.
  • 6th grade-8th grade will meet every Monday 3-5pm. These lessons are STEM focused and will involve group building projects and basic circuit training.

Fall 2021

The kids had a great semester learning about beef and dairy cattle, turkeys and pumpkins!

Spring 2022

Spring on the farm is almost magical, and this spring will be no different.

Our younger classes will start off the semester learning the basics of soil and seed anatomy. They will take a break from plant life for a few weeks to incubate and hatch some chicks. Then, they will head back into the world of plants to learn about garden design and function.

Our middle school class will learn about the same topics as the younger kids, but they will have more, including: hands on experiences constructing their own incubator, and designing/building a hen house prototype. We will learn about basic circuit function to help them add lighting to their prototypes, if desired.

A little about the teacher

Hi, I am Jessica! I have been a homeschool mom for 5 years to my three children (11, 10 and 8 years old). I grew up working on a farm, but transitioned into healthcare as an adult. After my children were born, I always made it a priority to get them out in nature for hands on learning experiences. Five years ago, my family and I moved to our homestead in Johnston County. We have learned so much more through gardening, composting, raising livestock and bees. We are also active in our local 4H community.

I am excited to be able to offer your children some ag-based learning opportunities, and can’t wait to see everyone this spring!
