This week we are going to cover the different types of farms in our #MinecraftMonday. This one is really fun, especially with all the field trips you can take in person to match it. My kiddo also enjoys creating his own little farm (his garden) at home. With a mix in the game and out, let’s see what your children can come up with.
If you have been following us for a while, we like to add a lot of resources into our lessons. Field Trips, movies, cooking, games, reading and so much more. This lesson is super fun because we are actually moving out of NYC and right into an area surrounded by all types of farms.
Animals farms (Horses, Pigs, Chickens, Llamas, Goats, Beef Cows, Dairy farms, Bison, and so many more)
Crop farms (Hemp, corn, hay, Blueberries, Strawberries, Apples, Oranges, Peaches etc)
And then there is more like Homesteading which is the combination that is only meant to sustain your family.
There are actually 13 types of farms (not talking what they raise/grow). I will save that for letting your kids research, which is an important skill,
Below are two farm simulators (or so they say) which has combined crop and animals. The reason I believe they said simulator is because the crops were growing with the setup. As usual, we first explore then we add, or create our own world. Check out the pictures below.
These were only two of the many mods you could download, but these looked the most realistic, so we rolled with it. The one above was obviously the better of the two but that’s okay.
Then I challenged the kiddo to create his own dream farm, we weren’t using the zoo mod so he couldn’t have a bison farm, which is a dream of his, but we rolled with it.
Ask your kids questions on how crops will grow, what the animals eat, and where they stay too.
What types of farms have you heard about?
Next I challenge you and your child to a field trip. You can drive around, there are farms close to the city like White Post in Queens, or check out the Central Park Zoo has farm animal in the petting zoo section if you can’t go upstate.
