I-pad Books from Ag in the Classroom
Corn Grower’s Story I-Book is a fun, educational farm visit in which a farmer shares what is required to successfully raise corn and other crops. We see that being proficient in academic subjects like math and science is essential when growing crops. Users will learn about the history of corn, the parts of the plant, the nutritional aspects and where a corn kernel stores its energy. This I-Book contains video clips that show a corn crop growing (this is a time-lapse video that shows a season of growth in just 90 seconds!). The user will ride in a tractor as corn is being planted and meet Colorado State University students using ethanol. Interactive reviews and quizzes reinforce student comprehension. Math, science, geography, vocabulary, writing, visual arts and economic activities are provided throughout the visually appealing pages. This resource, like other Colorado Foundation for Agriculture materials, is presented as an activity book rather than a game. This book will engage students or anyone looking for a comprehensive introduction to corn and corn farming. Students will be able to apply what they learn about corn to other crops. Users will also see that farmers, like others successful in their respective occupations, continue their education to learn new technologies and techniques.
