Dry Edible Bean Farmer Math

Farmer Math is a series of questions that go along with each Flat Aggie report.  These are patterned after the blog Bedtime Math.  Some of the questions are easy enough for pre-schoolers and sometimes I come up with some to even challenge high school seniors.

These questions follow the report Flat Aggie Visits For Dry Bean Harvest.  Additional educational materials can be found in the post All About Dry Edible Beans from The Illinois Farm Girl.

If you are a teacher or homeschooler that would like more information to go with the Flat Aggie reports, send me a message on my contact form.  Along with the report and the Farmer Math questions, we send each teacher an additional page of activities, crossword puzzles and sometimes a few hands on activities.
