Legumes have been used in agricultural production since the earliest of civilizations.
They have served as the primary source of nitrogen for many cropping systems, as well as providing food for humans and domestic animals.
In many developing agricultural regions of the world, legumes are still used extensively for these purposes.
As part of our tractor week, your little one partook in a sensory activity about tractors and legumes.
Using five different kinds of legumes, students practiced driving tractors and “planting” crops with their friends.
Once finished, everyone enjoyed gathering the different legumes in their fingers and letting them sift to the ground!
