At Home Learning
For the week of April 12, 2021
Welcome to our At Home Learning Page!
We will do our best to offer weekly ideas for at home learning about agriculture!
These activities will all be free to access and share. Our weekly activities do not build on each other, but are individual and can be done in any order.
There are a lot of important agriculturists who have made a difference in the world of farming; this week we are going to learn about Henry Blair.
Henry Blair changed the world of agriculture in the 19th century with his 2 patented inventions: a corn planter and a cotton planter. Before diving into activities, do some research using Kiddle.co to learn more!

Thanks to inventors like Mr. Blair, agriculture has come a long way since the 1800s. This lesson from Ag in the Classroom explores how farmers today increase food production with precision agriculture.
How can agriculture continue to innovate and how will farmers sustainably feed nearly 10 billion people by the year 2050? Play Journey 2050 and find out!
