Classroom Ideas

Pupils may create a pictorial timeline depicting the typical day of a child living on a dairy farm. They could then be challenged to create a pictorial timeline depicting their own typical day, comparing their hobbies and pastimes with the boy in the clip. After children have presented their favourite pastimes, hobbies and chores, a rich discussion could be conducted about how we all have different lifestyles depending on where we live and what our family do. Pupils may also like to create their own documentary conveying life on a dairy farm which could be presented in an assembly.
