Ben thinks of their trip to the farm. The farmer let them feed his chicks and they had chips and a chop for lunch. Pam and Ben's pets Tim and Sox went to the farm too. Ben’s dog Tim was very bad at the farm. He got a chick and would not give it back to the farmer. When it was time to go, Tim would not get in the car. He was such a bad dog! “We can make some farm cards,” Ben tells Pam. “Yes,” smiles Pam. “We can make cards with chicks on them.” “And we can have a card with the farmer on it,” Ben tells her. “We could have cards with ducks and sheep and pigs,” Pam tells Ben. . “They are all on the farm.” Pam starts to write on the paper. She writes chicks, farmer, sheep, ducks and pigs. “We have made a good start on our list,” smiles Pam. “Can you think of other things that live on a farm?” 4
