Farmers Till With Care

This is one of a series of lessons developed by the National Corn Growers Association to educate young scholars. For this lesson, students read a story, "Ann Learns to Plow." They discuss Ann's feelings about the soil. Young scholars use a hair dryer and a pan of bare soil to represent soil erosion. They use a spray bottle to demonstrate water erosion. Students discuss the use of plants to control erosion.

Lesson Planet does a great job in matching appropriate resources with the lessons I am trying to find. I need things that will make learning real, but at the same time, fun and interesting, and I can always count on Lesson Planet to provide that.
