Bernalillo, Sandoval and Santa Fe County Cooperative Extension Agents presented their fun activity, Farming to Feed You, in RiverXchange schools throughout February and March.

The activity allows students to experiment with different types of irrigation and draw their own conclusion as to which is most efficient. Students use their math skills to take data on their trials and calculate crop losses. Agents also cover important social studies standards by teaching about the causes and effects of the Dust Bowl.
