Read to Feed with Heifer International
Another great free curriculum offer! This is from Heifer International. The organization works worldwide providing families in developing nations with farm animals to promote economic development. They gave us two sets of curriculum, one for 3-4th grade and another geared toward 5-6th grade as apart of the Read to Feed program. Both are based on books about families who have recieved animals and how thier lives changed. We are currently working 3-4th grade curriculum which is based on the book, Beatrice's Goat. The curriculum covers economics, biology, civics, and geography. The story of Beatrice is so touching and the children love it. We are saving money now to buy a goat for a family. I got this about a year ago, so check out Heifer's website for current info.
