'My American Farm' updates

and releases new game

Aug. 29, 2013 | 0 comments

The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture has released a new educational game entitled "Load the Lunchbox" that helps young learners connect the food in their lunchboxes to the farmers who produce it.

The engaging new game was designed specifically for the pre-K-K learner, but is fun for the whole family.

Learners meet Farmer Luis who takes them on a trip to farms across the nation. At each stop, learners race to swipe the screen and harvest all of the nutritious food on the farm. Once harvested, learners earn a related item to add to their lunchbox.

Accompanying the game is a new eComic "Teaching Winter Wheat" that allows players to join Benjamin P. Farmington as he visits a wheat farm throughout the year to learn about how wheat is planted, grown, harvested, stored and processed. The new game and resources can be found here.

In addition to the release of Load the Lunchbox, the Foundation also announced the launch of a new version of the popular game "Ag Spin 'N Solve."

In this enhanced version, users pick from a variety of agricultural categories before spinning the prize wheel and solving a word puzzle.

New subject areas and terms have been added to the game to help learners increase their understanding of the science and technology involved in agriculture.

My American Farm is an educational game platform that was launched in 2011 to engage pre-K through fifth grade learners in the discovery of relevant agricultural issues.

Today the free site offers 17 agriculturally-themed games and more than 100 free educator resources such as lesson plans, activity sheets and comics. Two additional games will be released later this year.
