Ag Education on the Move (AEOTM) kicked off summer programming yesterday in Perryville. Isabel Legg educated second graders at Perryville Elementary on the life cycle of a soybean. Students labeled parts of a soybean, discussed the harvesting process and listed products made from soybeans. Students then became farmers by making soybean necklaces, creating a nutritious environment for their soybean to germinate!
Over the next three weeks students will also learn:
– How farmers provide us with safe, nutritious food.
– Dairy Cattle and how they are raised.
– Life cycle of a cow from pasture to plate, beef, products we use everyday.
– How poultry farmers provide both meat and eggs, and their journey from farm to store.
– And MUCH more!
