'Innovation in Agriculture – Then & Now '

The telephones and cars around when your student’s grandparents were kids are a lot different than the ones we use today. Farming has changed a lot too, but they may not realize it. In this fast-pace session we will look at how specific aspects of agriculture, from raising pigs to harvesting corn, have changed over time. Participants will leave with lessons and resources they can use to help students explore these changes in social studies lessons and STEM lessons.

Workshop Session (all workshops will be 60 minutes)
