Bring your natural curiosity and craftiness into FREE live learning sessions by Penn Museum educators!

The first day of spring is just around the corner, and we’re celebrating the new season by looking at the history of agriculture. One of the most important achievements to shape human society has been the ability to grow and raise crops. Students will learn about the early history of agriculture and study the tools and techniques ancient Mesopotamian peoples used to develop stable, renewable food sources. They will then apply their knowledge to design their own gardens.

Recommended materials: Blank sheet of paper and a writing utensil.
