God Makes the Farm Animals: Pigs

Monday, April 23, 2018
This is part of our preschool learning we did at home. It includes ideas that can be used at home to learn about God's creation. *This is intended for home use or preschool (or kindergarten) classes. They are not intended for Bible class.*
We began our study about the pigs with these information posters I created. They are two to a page to save printing. They have a real photo and information text easy for preschoolers to understand and hold their interest. Click here to download the posters
I put together notebooks for each person that included each habitat. I added the other animals we would be looking at like farm and pets to the same notebook. These farm animal posters were created to be able to see each farm animal. I used real photos and put two per page to save ink. Just cut down the middle after printing and they are ready to use. I kept them simple, but tried to find full bodies of the animals in their habitat. For instance, this farm pack had a different dog than the dog in the pet pack. Click here to download.
 I used the printables and posters here to discuss what comes from a pig, cow, sheep & hen from this pack
 I decided to make something quick & easy that can be used as a craft in Bible class with pigs. They love paper plate crafts and anything long-legged. I used a hole punch and they inserted a pink chenille stem. They twisted it around the base, then wrapped the long end around a pencil to make the tail curly. They glued the face to the rim of the plate to make it pop. I stapled the legs to the back of the paper plate and then folded accordion style to finish the legs. Directions are included in the download. The pig faces are black and white only and can be printed on pink cardstock. Or, white to be colored or painted. Click here to download the pig faces.
We looked at these books from the library. This means this is what our library had available. If there is not a link, then it was not on Amazon at the time of posting. I suggest looking at your library to see what is available for free and if you love any of the books, then purchase them. Most of these are not really for preschoolers. 
Their favorite was Ten Hungry Pigs. They also liked Pig Takes a Bath.
We read Mrs. Wishy Washy which they love.
