Unit 3 – Farm visits: Practical hints on setting up a visit
In this unit I will learn how to:
- Explore the main steps involved in setting up a farm visit
- Investigate funding options
- Consider the health and safety implications of a farm visit
Introduction to the topic:
Undertaking a visit to a local farm is a wonderful experience for young people. It is a chance for them to see, hear, smell and experience new things and be inspired by the natural world. It is also an opportunity for children to start learning about food and where it comes from. You may wish to think about how you will link your farm visit to the learning experiences, as well as how to pay for the visit and the health and safety implications.
