New lessons out for Ag in the Classroom

Dec. 31, 2013 | 0 comments

MADISON

Wisconsin Farm Bureau's Ag in the Classroom Program has launched a new set of lesson plans called, "Telling Our Agricultural Story", for middle and high school students.

Food and agriculture are topics for everyone to discuss. With a renewed interest by the public in understanding where their food comes from, farmers can offer a valuable insight to the non-farm public and customers about how food gets from the farm to the table.

There is a lot of information available today, especially about food, agriculture and the farm community. To help students, teachers, and the public process the information and make decisions and opinions based on facts, "Telling Our Agricultural Story" offers information about farming and production agriculture, sources to contact, social media and website references, and other resources relating to the production of our food and fiber.

The curriculum offers a number of lessons and activities for a classroom setting, for youth groups such as 4-H and FFA, and for educational displays.

The resources available include a booklet about modern agriculture, a student handout, a tri-fold brochure and various lesson plans.

The lessons and related resources can be downloaded from the Wisconsin Ag in the Classroom website (wisagclassroom.org), or by contacting Darlene Arneson at 608-828-5719 or darneson@wfbf.com.

The lessons were developed from an ACE Grant of the USDA Ag in the Classroom Program. Information about the National Ag in the Classroom Program can be found at www.agclassroom.org.

Farm Bureau's Ag in the Classroom program provides teachers and students K-12 with an understanding of how their food is produced. The program seeks to work within existing curricula to provide basic information on our nation's largest industry: Agriculture.

Wisconsin's Ag in the Classroom program is carried out by a network of local educators, volunteers and representatives from agricultural organizations and businesses. The goal of the program is to help students gain a greater awareness of the role of agriculture in the economy and society, so that they may become citizens who support wise agricultural policies.
