Discovering Farmland takes an interactive look at agriculture based on the documentary film, "Farmland, a film by James Moll." Engage in clips from the documentary to deliver lessons about farming as industry, stereotypes, and challenges in farming and ranching. Take a virtual field trip to learn about the innovative technology used in agriculture. Be sure to check out the Exploration portion of the site to find out more about food labels found at the grocery store.

tag(s): agriculture (58), nutrition (154)

In the Classroom

Use video clips found on the site to share information about farming and agriculture with your students. If you are new to integrating technology in your classroom, consider having students create blogs about a "day in the life" of a farmer or rancher. An easy to use blog creator is Telegra.ph, here. Telegra.ph will create a "quick and easy" blog to be used one time only. A unique URL is provided, and with Telegra.ph you just click on an icon to upload images from your computer, add a YouTube or Vimeo, or Twitter links. It's as easy as using a basic Word program! For teachers who are more experienced with integrating technology in their classroom, challenge cooperative learning groups to create podcasts sharing their insights on different types of farming and how technology has changed the agriculture industry. Create podcasts using a site such as Spreaker, reviewed here. You could give students a choice, either a podcast or to use a mapping tool such as Zeemaps, reviewed here, to create a map of different types of farms found around the country or the world. With Zeemaps you can include audio stories and pictures.
