Grades 3-8 (Kit)
This hands-on activity explores grains and legumes common in global agricultural production—barley, dent corn, popcorn, oats, rice, wheat, soybeans, lentils, and pinto beans. Students create their own journals that include important facts, descriptions, and samples of the seeds of these crops. Teachers can use the information to expand students' knowledge of agriculture while connecting to lessons in social studies and science. This kit contains enough seeds for a classroom of 30 students. A master copy of the grains and legumes information cards is also included.
