It’s no secret that the world’s population is continuously growing. In fact, statistics indicate the world’s population is growing at a rate of 1.14% every year , meaning by 2067, there could be 13 billion mouths to feed. What does this all mean for farmers and crop producers? It means there’s no better time than now to prepare our youth to become the best farmers and crop producers possible, so they can make a strong living and follow their parents’ and grandparents’ efforts in feeding the continuously growing population.
While there are many fun and exciting ways for kids to become familiar with agriculture, we wanted to share just one more fun way to assist the agricultural learning process in a way the kids will love. Let’s take a moment to look at three John Deere coloring pages that will be sure to keep kids entertained, while also teaching them a little about farming and crop production. Enjoy!
“Ready Rooster” is a constant in each of the coloring pages. In this page, farm equipment safety is the focus. The kids are tasked to find the letters to the word “seat-belt” by painting them green. After they’ve identified and colored the letters, they are then encouraged to finish coloring the rest of the page for a little extra fun!
In this word puzzle, Ready Rooster needs help finding 12 farm or safety words. This is a great way for the kids to stimulate their minds while identifying words that are commonplace in the agriculture industry.
The kids’ counting skills are put to test in this coloring page, as the objective is to count the number of animals in each image group, and match the total to the number on the sheet by drawing a line. This will help the kids understand what animals they might come across on the farm, and as Ready Rooster says, be careful because animal parents can be very protective!
John Deere coloring pages are just another way to get the kids interested in agriculture. Feel free to share this post or let us know some of the ways you’re teaching your kids about farming by connecting with us on Facebook!
