Part of Lesson Plan: History of Agriculture
Activity Overview / Details
As students enter the room, have a piece of paper at their seat
for them. This paper could have a timeline already drawn on it.
Welcome! Let's take a few moments and think about a few major events in our lives that have had an impact on making us who we are. For example, when I was 9 our garage burned, destroying 3 vehicles and our bicycles. Because of that experience, I now have a fear of fire. On your own, silently think of a few events in your life that made a lasting impact on you. (Pause to allow students time to think about these) Now that we have identified some major events please create a timeline showing when these events occurred. You will have 1 minute to complete this.
Who is willing to share an event with us? Now take a few seconds and just think to yourself - how did that impact your life?
Let's consider agriculture. What ideas do you have about how agriculture has changed over the past 200 years?
