Agriculture All Around

Although the corn mazes and hay rides have ended here in the valley and the season of rain (and possibly snow!) is upon us, it is never too late to learn more about the agriculture that sustains our nation.

My American Farm invites you to take a journey with them to learn more about this industry and help build agricultural awareness and understanding through education. This interactive site provides a variety of resources for educators and fun learning activities for kids of all ages.

 

To learn more about these topics, you and your students may also want to check out the following books:
