Ohio Soybean Harvest Virtual Field Trip for Elementary Students

On Demand
Elementary School

October 18, 2023

This 30-minute virtual field trip will connect K-5 students directly with a northwest Ohio soybean farmer for a ride-along in his combine as he harvests soybeans.

Students will:

  • Get a live tour of an Ohio soybean farm and ride in a combine during harvest
  • Learn how a combine works and how grain is stored in and transported through an elevator
  • Learn what happens to soybeans after they leave the field
  • Discover the uses and benefits of Ohio soybeans
  • and more!

This LIVE Virtual Farm Trip is hosted by GrowNextGen, the educational initiative of the Ohio Soybean Council, in cooperation with educationprojects.org, a team of educators that writes curriculum and manages education programs connecting the workplace to the classroom.


Backed by funding from Ohio soybean farmers and their checkoff program, GrowNextGen brings agriculture science to the classroom by providing real-world educational tools to engage the next generation workforce.
