Each “shelter at home” school day, Illinois Agriculture in the Classroom staff post Everyday Agriculture videos and activity ideas based on a theme. We loved “Ag in My Cabinet” and the scavenger hunt-style BINGO game, but there are MANY more ideas to check out!
Several activities from the National Agricultural Literacy Curriculum Matrix have been adapted for e-learning, like making desktop greenhouses or bioplastic. Find out “Who Grew My Soup” with a read-aloud and try related activities!
Did you know that a ripe orange might look green, or that cranberries float? Do you ever wonder how garlic is grown? Check out the How Does It Grow videos to learn how the produce we love is grown and harvested.
