Farmers Till With Care
This is one of a series of lessons developed by the National Corn Growers Association to educate learners. In this activity, students read a story, "Ann Learns to Plow." They discuss Ann's feelings about the soil. Learners 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.
