A Day in the Life of a Farmer

  1. 1. BIG HISTORY PROJECT / LESSON 7.1 A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A FARMER The benefits of agriculture for humans were dramatic. The food and energy resources that humans gained access to as a result of farming were immense. This new found control over energy sources led to drastic changes in the way that humans lived, including the rise of cities and civilizations. Take 5 minutes to brainstorm what a typical day would be like for a farmer. Fill in the chart, which divides the day into 6-hour intervals and asks about specific daily activities. When you are done, compare your chart with your partner’s chart. Your teacher may ask you to share some of your ideas with the class.
