|We work with teachers throughout the year to make it easier for
them to teach agriculture in their classrooms. Teachers are
invited to our offices to learn about the program and how it can benefit
them and their students. Upon request, we can do in-services
at schools or at district meetings.
We offer project kits which stress hands-on activities such as
vermiculture, hatching chicks or trout, gardening and hydroponics.
We maintain a library of reference books, children's books and videos
which may be borrowed. All of our materials are provided free
of charge, in exchange for exhibits, which demonstrate what students
have learned and are the components of our fair.
Bi-Monthly, we publish
a newsletter to advise teachers about upcoming events and to provide information
on a variety of agriculture-related topics.
