Storyboard Text

  • 1st Agricultural Revolution
  • I bought a cow and chicken before everyone else could, since the population is rising.
  • 2nd Agricultural Revolution
  • I bred those two regular pigs to make a big pig.
  • Green Revolution
  • This is the greenhouse we keep our genetically modified plants in.
  • The 1st agricultural revolution happened in 10,000 BC in the fertile crescent (modern day Iraq). There were many domesticated plants and animals (like cows, goats, potatoes and maize). And two effects were sedentary lifestyle and an increased population.
  • The 2nd agricultural revolution happened in England between 1750 and 1850. Many farming methods were discovered like crop rotation and selective breeding. There was also new farming machinery like the sickle and the cotton gin.
  • The green revolution occurred in the mid 1900's, and produced a lot of crops, and less land was used (forests were also saved). But also chemical runoff and water being polluted by the chemicals.
