The ag classes observed all of the equipment and their safety equipment. The students were asked to see how many blind spots there are on a tractor. They were also asked to think of instances that might occur while driving the equipment and how they would respond to keep everyone around them as safe as possible.

As car drivers they were asked to take into consideration the difficulty of driving the equipment.
