Ten Things Kids Want to Know About Farming Video
This educational video takes students on a series of field trips to farm and ranch locations throughout the United States, offering them a firsthand view of what happens to produce the food and clothing we use everyday. Scenes of farmers using tractors and irrigation systems, harvesting crops and trees, milking cows, and herding sheep invite students to experience a world largely unknown to them. By answering questions that kids commonly ask about agriculture, farmers and ranchers share the realities of making a living off the land. This is a useful tool for introducing fundamental concepts of food production.
