I don’t know about you, but my family dreams of owning land someday and my girls wish they lived on a farm. I thought it would be fun to do an in depth study on Farm Animals for Science! This week we will be learning about pigs and I found lots of great resources you can compile together to do your own study on pigs for all ages!
