Agriculture is a necessary activity that allows us humans to meet our needs for food, fuel, fibre and even medicine. But what kind of impact does cultivating land and raising livestock have on the environment? Can potential negative impacts be reduced or mitigated?
This series of inquiry based activities helps students understand the less obvious connections between our everyday lives and farming, while developing critical thinking and research skills.
For additional learning opportunities associated with this kit, bring your students to the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum to participate in the Agriculture and the Environment school program.
