Welcome to Zone 9 – Machinery

Total viewing time +20 minutes

In this zone Farmer Luke shows us around the many machines used in farming. You may be surprised at how much technology is found inside a tractor – it’s like a land-based space ship. You can also see how sugar beet is grown and we compare a modern day combine harvester to an old threshing machine. This shows how much farming machinery has developed.  There are 8 video and 5 worksheets for you to enjoy.

They learnt about many processes of food and the ingredients used in some products. They enjoyed seeing the machinery and having the chance to get into some of the vehicles. They could get close to animals and learning about their many uses within the farming community. Lots of learning opportunities throughout the day for all ages.
