Adam Krause – November 2022

Adam shows us how he gets the barn ready for the arrival of new baby pigs.


Discussion Topic: Adam talks about cleaning the pig barn before new pigs arrive. He also talked about biosecurity for the pigs in a previous video. Think about things we do every day in school and at home that would help with our own biosecurity. What kind of good habits do you have to help stop the spread of germs and bacteria?


Discussion Topic: Core standard 4-LS1-1 Construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction. 

When Adam was showing us the heaters in the pig barn, he said that the pigs like the temperature to be warm, about 82°F. Do you think the heating system in the barn is similar to a heating system in your house? What temperature do humans prefer to have their homes and schools during the winter?
