Think Outside the Box with Agriculture
This FREE virtual workshop is designed to introduce K-12 educators to agriculture activities and lessons that can be incorporated into the classroom while adhering to the current learning standards, STEM & NGSS concepts. Agriculture provides teachers with a perfect opportunity for student-centered study through analysis, evaluation and creation of food production problem solutions, genetics and biotechnology issues, science and engineering principles, and natural resource conservation studies. Presenters from DuPage County Farm Bureau Ag in the Classroom, University of Illinois Extension, and Facilitating Coordination in Agriculture Education (FCAE) will provide a variety of activities and resources that connect many different concepts such as animals, plants, foods, technology, and careers. Attendees will receive new ideas of how to incorporate agriculture into their current curriculum, while also sparking students’ interest in the food, fiber, and fuel industry.
