Combine Harvesters

A combine harvester, or combine, is the tool of choice for harvesting corn and other grains.


The reason this piece of equipment is called a combine is simply because it combines several jobs into a single machine.


Combines cut the crop and separate the grain from the plant while processing and spreading the remaining material over the field.


The invention of the combine was a major moment in human history (with some debate about who really invented it!) that revolutionized the way grain crops were harvested.


To help us understand this amazing machine, we combine tractors and corn kernels to harvest corn!


With their friends, your little one moved corn around sensory tubs, laughing as they planted their “crops.”
