We have been exploring so many new things in Iowa the past few weeks, and this morning we had the opportunity to hop in a wagon and join about 20 or so tractors for a ride into town!
AND not only that but we had the chance to hop (it was more like climbing!) into a combine to harvest a field of corn! How cool is that?! I learned a LOT of farming while we were out there and my boys just LOVED the big machinery!
The combine is one extremely powerful machine! I was just absolutely amazed at what it does – but that’s an entirely different learning lesson!
Once the combine sucked up the corn it spit it out into the grain bin! That is a LOT of corn!! It seems that now that we live in Iowa my kids will have LOTS of farming experience and learning! Here are some fun farming activities I found that you can do with your kids or students!
