Humanity Against Hunger

For grades 6-12

Students take a virtual journey to Africa, in which they become a volunteer to help end the famine caused by soil nutrient depletion. Through the interactive experience, students learn how nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus deficiencies can stunt plant growth in multiple ways. They also learn that replenishing the land with fertilizer can help farmers achieve higher crop yields to feed more people.At the village, you encounter three maize farmers, each of whom faces a different crop problem. In each scenario, the farmer describes his or her growing conditions and then shows you photos of afflicted maize plants. Using a field manual, you must analyze each situation, offer a diagnosis and then recommend a remedy.
