At Home Learning

For the month of December 2021  

Welcome to our At Home Learning Page! Here we have agriculture and farming book suggestions and activities you can do at home. These activities do not build on each other and can be done in any order. 

Around the holidays, a lot of families do a lot of baking. For our December at home learning activities, let’s turn baking into learning!

Reminder: this is our last at home learning activity post. We hope you have enjoyed the series and feel free to use the lessons for years to come.
