Agricultural engineers are very important in our everyday lives. They are biology experts and focus much of their work on living systems concerning plants and animals. Our focus in first grade will be on pollination, learning about relationships between insects and plants both in helpful and harmful ways.
As we dig deeper into our story on agricultural engineering, we are learning exactly what the word agriculture means. We've officially defined agriculture as preparing and using nature for humans to use. This may include trees, soil, flowers, vegetables, fruits, and animals. Each first grader had a chance to plant a marigold seed in a Grow-Lab in Mrs. Brinza's classroom. We'll watch the seeds' growth each week and see what happens!
