There's no better time than the spring to explore the farm. Young and old alike love to take in the sights, sounds, and smells of the animals. Wait… they do? Well, maybe not those smells! Instead of visiting the real farm with its pungent smells, come along on this virtual field trip to visit the animals, and examine and analyze their scat- or poop! First, identify which animal produced the poop, then learn a little about that animal’s feeding habits and digestive processes. You can learn a lot about animals by studying their poop!
