What are some tools that are used in farming?

Have you ever wondered how egpytians cut down their crops? Well.....guess what?!? They used tools!! They used different kinds of tools like winnowing scoops. Which is like a pitch fork. I can so see an egyptian saying "Grab your pitch forks! Its time to cut crops!" Anyways, another tool is called a Mattock. A mattock is like pick ax. Egyptians also had flint-bladed sickles and plows. Plows were pulled by any animal they had!! I'm not kidding!! Even pigs pulled a plow! Sickles a tool also used to cut down crops. You guys know what a sickle is. Right? Well if you don't know what it is, its the thing that the Grim Reeper always carries around. Until next time i post! Peace!
