Wheat Ag Mag


We eat a lot of wheat! This Ag Mag contains a wealth of information about this frequent food ingredient. Students will learn the parts of a wheat plant, how farmers grow wheat, wheat nutrition, wheat history, and much more! Readers can also explore careers associated with wheat and conduct a hands-on activity to discover what gluten is and isolate it from wheat flour.
