Purdue Ag Activity Pages

The outbreak of COVID-19 has disrupted our lives, and families are facing new challenges. Spring Break vacations are postponed; schools are closed; and play dates have been canceled. As parents and caretakers look for new ways to entertain their children at home, Purdue Agriculture is here to help!

We have created printable pages with activities that focus on agriculture. Below are brief descriptions, along with a link to each PDF.

Comic Story Starter

These three comic strip prompts let your child tell their own story. Whether it's on the farm, in the science lab or out in nature - there are plenty of adventures in agriculture!

This page has three activities: a word search, word jumble and maze. The tasks are slightly more complicated, so older children will enjoy this one. (P.S. Adults will have fun too!)

Color & Cut Puzzle

First your little artist colors the page, and then you cut out the squares. Now your family has a Purdue pollinator puzzle! We recommend printing on card stock because we know this game will get a lot of use.

Metamorphosis Coloring Page

Who said learning can't be fun? This coloring page shows the four stages of the butterfly life cycle: egg, caterpillar, pupa and butterfly.
