Farm Animal Rescue of Mifflinburg Outreach staff strive
to promote the humane treatment of farm animals through
awareness programs tailored to different groups.
Program:â€‹ The FARM
Educational Outreach Coordinators have developed a humane
farm animal education and awareness program for children
to help teach the basic needs of farm animals as
well as to promote respect, empathy and compassion for
all living things. Many children have an innate interest
in animals that we tap into in order to show that
animals, like people, have feelings, emotions and
personalities and are more than just sources of
food and labor.
A variety of lesson plan themes are available or one can be customized for your group. All lesson plans have been developed to meet the Pennsylvania Common Core Standards and our services are free (donations are appreciated, of course!).
Some of the components of our children's programs are focused story readings, educational and sensory activities, crafts, multimedia presentations about the animals on the FARM, Farm-to-Home activities sheets & more.
Older Children's and Adult
Program: The FARM Educational Outreach
Coordinators have also developed programs tailored to
older children and adults. These programs typically
involve discussion of who we are, what we do and why we
do what we do here at the FARM, as well as humane farming
practices in general. Specifics of the program
appropriate for your group may be discussed with our
Outreach Coordinators, please contact them through our email.
