Visit a farm!

Observe a farmer at work, and help out if possible – pick rocks or pull weeds. At home, rake leaves or shovel a neighbour’s sidewalk.

Goal: Practice perseverance.

Plan to spend some time observing a farmer at work, and help them out if possible! It is a great way to find out about perseverance and hard work. In the spring, you could offer to pick rocks off a farmer’s field. In the summer there are usually plenty of weeds to pull everywhere. Fall is a great time to help with yard cleanup and leaf raking. In an urban setting, wintertime provides opportunities to get out and shovel a neighbour’s sidewalk.
