More than 900 million cattle, sheep, pigs and poultry are reared in the UK each year for food production, along with many millions of farmed fish. Does your class know where their food comes from?
These activities encourage children to think about the food they eat and products they use every day, that come from animals.
They will learn that farm animals have basic needs that must be met by the humans who care for them, but will also learn about the ways in which we can all influence the health and welfare of farm animals.
