Cookie Cutter Farms
By Mary L. Bushong
1 "As a conclusion to our study of farms and agriculture, I have a special activity for you," said Mr. Robinson as he stood at the front of the classroom.
2 Everyone listened closely, even Marty Faber, who usually tried to distract one or two people at any given time.
3 "Since no one here lives on a farm, I made special arrangements with the ladies in the cafeteria. We will make our own cookie cutter farms tomorrow afternoon. Tomorrow morning, I need you to bring in cookie cutters in the shapes of farm animals." Mr. Robinson paused while the class murmured with excitement, then he held up his hand for silence. "Go ahead and clear your desks, since the bell will ring in a moment. Be sure to do your homework, and don't forget those cookie cutters!"
4 The next morning, the excitement grew among the classmates. Each one had brought at least one cookie cutter. Huddled groups compared cutters as they talked softly. Janie had a horse, a dog, and a cat. Marty had a small pig, and David had two ducks. David was very fond of ducks.
5 When class started, everyone quickly sat down. They craned their necks looking to see what everyone else had brought. Mr. Robinson did a count of the cutters and listed them on the chalk board. There were six hens, two ducks, five sheep, nine cows, three pigs, six dogs, seven cats, a horse, two gingerbread people, and a tractor.
