Today’s second #kanji is #科.
#のぎへん（禾） which has something to do with “harvest” is used with “a dipper” 斗（ト）. Does that mean people used a dipper to sort their harvest when this kanji was formed?
I have listed 2 kun-yomi (originally Japanese reading) for this kanji but they are not listed for daily use, so even if you didn’t know them, don’t worry.

科目（カモク）: a subject, a course of study, an item
学科（ガッカ）: a subject of study, a course of study
