Fox, Goose, Corn

Below is the illustrated solution handed in by one of my students. Of course she will get FULL credit!

A farmer has to get a fox, a goose, and a bag of corn across a river in a boat that is only large enough for her and one of these three items. She does not want to leave the fox alone with the goose nor the goose alone with the corn. How can she get all these items across the river?
