Today’s Kid Scoop studies the amazing Polyface farm in Virginia, which does its best to use “solar power” to keep its operation going. Notice that we put “solar power” in quotes because we’re not talking about the modern, solar-panel version of solar power. You’ll have to check out this video to learn more about how Polyface’s version of solar power works: http://youtu.be/KxTfQpv8xGA
You and your parents can use solar power in a similar way with a chicken tractor. Take a tour of the structure: http://youtu.be/2DJjEIPqF7M
See a cattle roundup on a Wyoming farm. Even the kids help out. http://youtu.be/RNWQQPvNJBs
