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.

September is National Fruits and Veggies Month so we are focusing on finding some new favorites!

Research what fruits and vegetables grow in your state. Visit a local farmers market and pick out some of your favorite fruits and veggies. Then make a fun salad! Even savory salads with lettuce can have some fruit! Try adding strawberries, blueberries or even peaches to your tossed salad! Use kid friendly search engine to help!

Tomato - fruit? vegetable? Find out more about this mysterious food and learn how they grow.
