Educating students in kindergarten through 12th grade about the process of growing and harvesting wheat and other grains in America is the theme of a new series of free lessons called “Harvesting: Crops & Careers,” developed by the National Agriculture in the Classroom Organization, US Custom Harvesters, New Holland and ConjoStudios LLC.
The seven lessons introduce students to new technologies and varied careers involved in producing and harvesting grain crops and are tied to film footage from Conjostudios’ Conrad Weaver, producer of “The Great American Wheat Harvest” movie. Learn more at www.agclassroom.org/teacher/themes.htm.
