It's School Time! A Resource for Teachers

Um…is anyone else struggling with the fact that it is August already?!  It doesn’t seem possible, but here we are – and with August comes back to school for many teachers and students. 
 
Teachers, we know this can be a hectic time of year for you.  Getting ready for a whole new class of students, trainings, in service days, lesson planning and maybe even a new classroom – you have a lot going on!  To help just a little bit, we wanted to share a great online resource that you may be able to utilize in your classrooms.
 
If you are looking for ways to incorporate STEM into your teaching, agriculture can be a great way to do it.  From biotechnology, to water, sustainable agriculture, food production, how agriculture works with the environment, and more, if you are looking for some great tools and lesson plans be sure to check out http://www.agfoundation.org/free-resources

This great resource also has information about potential careers in agriculture – which are so much more than just working on a farm; as well as great books and activities to go with them for younger students.  The resources listed on this site are free, though there are also links to some resources that have a cost associated with them.
 
We hope you find this guide helpful as you enter a new school year!  If you are looking for other handouts or educational resource, be sure to check out our Teaching Materials Page as well!
