The Shape of Farming: Water For Crops – download pdf (698 KB) October 2019

Farmers use a number of different methods to irrigate crops, and some of them result in pretty interesting shapes.  In this issue, The Shape of Farming: Water for Crops, EO Kids looks at what water has to do with different types of farming practices, and how these practices look from space. Plus, grow your own mini-farm and see how your garden grows with this month’s “Data Viz.”

At EO Kids we are committed to making Earth science fun and engaging. Come explore our Earth with us.

Make your own garden and watch it daily as it changes, using your cell phone camera like a satellite to monitor change.
