Have fun with the following activities relating to the fall harvest
When the harvest moon looms big and bright in the sky and a chill enters the air, it is time in North America to harvest the last of the crops. On different days in Canada and United States, people hold harvest festivals to give thanks for what we have.
Agriculture and the process of harvesting crops have changed greatly over the years. In the past, food was grown locally, and a community’s survival often depended on the size of its harvest. Each person in a community was needed to help bring in the food by hand, right down to the children who gathered up any last bits of grain that had been left behind by the adult workers.
