This Weeks Ag in the Classroom Features The Crazy Oklahoma WeatherTue, 05 May 2020 08:39:43 CDT
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, many businesses and schools have closed down to practice social distancing. Many parents are at home with their kiddos, wondering, "What do we do now?" Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom has come up with some excellent daily activities you can do with your kids and family.
Today we are featuring Ag Tech Tuesday where the focus is on the crazy Oklahoma Weather! It is spring and we all know what that means in Oklahoma....storms and ALL different kinds of weather! Weather is important to all of us, but especially our farmers and agriculture. Weather forecasts and current data help farmers make the best decisions for their crops. Droughts, floods, tornadoes, hail, and even frost can be harmful to agriculture. Although we don't have much control over the weather, we do have great meteorologists, the National Weather Service, and mesonet stations all over Oklahoma.
You can sign up to complete the Oklahoma Mesonet Challenge!
Students can also learn about the career of a meteorologist, fill out cause and effect charts, learn about how much rain farmers need for their crops and more. Check out all the weather resources for Ag in the Classroom HERE.
And don't forget, Ag in the Classroom offers daily activities to do with your kiddos on their website, and their facebook page.
