Summer Learning Journey Activity 2 Day 4 Week Four

This is what I had to do for this task:
farmer.jpgWatch this short clip from Country Calendar. What do you think would be the most interesting and/or challenging things about being a farmer? Would you would like to be a farmer when you are older. Why/why not? Give us, at least, two reasons to support your answer. Here is my answer: It would be interesting to look after animals and get to know their habbits and hobbie too. But the most challenging thing is doing a lot of paper work. My 3 reasons for me not wanting to become a farmer is because 1 I already know what I wanna be when I grow up 2 it's going to be really hard driving everywhere even walking everywhere and 3 feeding lots of animals at the same time. I really love farming but I already have my dream job. My family use to go to the farm and do the onions.


  1. Hey Mele,

    I think it’s great that you already have a dream, that is definitely one good reason why you wouldn’t want to become a farmer. Funny you should mention paperwork, although it’s true there’s a lot, you’ve been the first to point it out! Normally people immediately think of physical labour that farming entails. A suggestion for next time, maybe list your reasons in bullet points to make it easily identifiable.

    I personally, have never wanted to be a farmer, my passion is in teaching which I why I became a teacher. You’ve talked about having a dream, what is your dream job? What steps will you take to achieve your dream job? Let me know in the comment section below.

    Toe feiloa’i fo’i,


  2. Hi Mele
    Good job on completing this summer learning journey activity. My grandparents were farmers and it was heaps of hard work (one of the reasons why I wouldn't want to be a farmer) so I totally agree with you when you say it's a hard job. Keep up the amazing work Mele.

  3. Hi Mele
    Great job on completing this activity, I like how you added a picture of a tractor too. I have a question though, do you think anyone else in your family would like to become a farmer?
