xperiencing way more than
just the sights and sounds
of a farm, youngsters at
Akiva Hebrew Day School also became
immersed in the touch, taste — and even
the smells — during the study of the
Torah portion, Noach (Noah).
Students in the Southfield school's
Early Childhood Center (ECC) learned
"with all our senses': said ECC direc-
tor Lisa Parshan. The kids munched on
banana boat arks, complete with animal
crackers. "We enjoyed loading the ani-
mals onto the boat and eating a crunchy
snack.
"In Nursery 3, Morah Sarah's class
learned about floating and sinking,"
Parshan said. "Whether it was mixing oil
and water or placing objects in water to
see if they float or not, the 3-year-olds
enjoyed science-related activities that
tied with the parshah."
A lesson highlight was an Oct. 19 visit
from "Farmer John Forshee" from the
Barnyard Express, a mobile educational
farm center, who brought a virtual farm to
students in the ECC through third grade.
To the sounds of farm music, surround-
ed by props — including a 10-by-16-foot
farm scene backdrop — and actual farm
animals, Farmer John had important
information and much fun to share.
"He entertained us with his array of
well-trained farm animals, from a sheep
and a pig to a miniature horse and calf'
Parshan said. "He talked about how near-
ly everything we eat comes from a farm."

Hannah Herdman 8, of Oak Park,

A demonstration on milking "Goofy
the Goat" was much-enjoyed by the kids
as well as Farmer John's dog, Smudge.
"As he milked the goat, he had Smudge
stand a good 5 feet away, and he directed
the stream right into the dog's mouth,"
Parshan said.
The farm may have been virtual, but
the animals were very real, and the kids
were able to visit with them and pet
them during the course of the program,
one of many special activities planned
for the youngsters during the school year.
"We are able to bring in programs like
the farm, our petting zoo and horseback
rides during Purim and other extra spe-
cial programs through proceeds of our
weekly ECC challah sales," Parshan said.
Continuing the study of Noah and
the ark, Parshan said, "Next it will be
raining; all the kids are coming in their
raingear to prepare for the flood:'
