The History of Illinois Agriculture presents these activities and lesson plans to teachers, students, and anyone interested in exploring the themes and research we covered in the Web site. All ages will enjoy many of these activities.

The activities are divided into the same five main themes as our web site: Animals, Plants, People, Land, and Technology. There are video lessons on doing oral histories. Some lessons, activities, and resources appear in more than one section. They are also in pdf format to print out correctly.
