Source Relay: Where Does Everything Come From?

Categories: Agriculture , Biology , Natural Resources

This fast-moving relay race teaches students that before any product leaves a factory, or enters a store, it began as a resource or product of the natural world - most likely agriculture. Students will work in teams and run a relay race where they have to quickly decide the source of a product and then race to place it into one of the buckets marked Factory, Store, Farm or Earth.
