This next collage is from a school visit I made in Florida. 
Look at this massive range of capability between children in the same room. 
Then send a hug to your favorite teacher. 
Every teacher you know has such a variety of students in their classroom.

Here's some barns under construction and comparing them to the pond. 
My grandparents farm had a pond and many of my favorite memories are from fishing adventures there.

While we're down on the farm, let's count the apples on the trees! 
Let's combine math skills with fine motor.

HOW COOL IS THIS PUMPKIN PATCH?
 'Growing' in real time! 
Vines and leaves first..... 
Peeking orange buds. 
Can you imagine how much fun it will be to add the pumpkins? 
Talk about 'delayed gratification'..... this is brilliant!
Projects that 'develop' and unfold over time nurture life skills of patience and persistence!

Here's a farm setting being 'built' in the classrom. 
The corn stalks were under construction on the morning of my Author/Illustrator school visit. 
I saw this farm at Otter Creek in the greater Chicago-land area.
