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 and how drones are becoming critical tools for farmers. How do drones help farmers, you ask? Here are just a few ways. They save farmers time, and imaging data from a drone gives a farmer good indicators of crop vigor.
Multi-spectral sensors allow a farmer to precisely apply needed water, fertilizers, or pesticides only where they are needed instead of applying the same amounts across the entire field.
Ag in the classroom also features new, fun ways to cook with your kiddos while learning about the agriculture industry. You can even learn how to make bread! in the Chop Chop Kids Club Newsletter, and they show you how to make bread for delicious summer sandwiches, bread stories, how to store bread, and more fun activities for the whole time.

Don't forget, Ag in the Classroom offers daily activities to do with your kiddos on their website and their Facebook page.
