2017 Teacher of The Year

NHAITC knows how hard teachers work for their students. This is a chance to recognize an outstanding NH elementary or secondary school teacher, who uses agricultural education materials and/or activities in the classroom to teach core subjects.  Last year, Mike Smith from Mascenic Regional High School was recognized for integrating student horticulture projects into the district's food classes and in landscaping the school grounds.  

The winning application(s) will be recognized in the spring and submitted to National Agriculture in the Classroom to be considered for national recognition.  Applications are due November 7, 2016.                                                                  
Do You Have A Lesson Plan You Could Share?

NHAITC is in the process of developing a comprehensive K-12 curriculum based on maple syrup production.  A variety of core academic areas will be addressed such as tree biology, chemistry, history, economics, simple machines, engineering and more. Do you have a favorite lesson plan in one of these areas that could be adapted to maple sugaring?  Please email with a brief description and we'll let you know if the lesson aligns with our planned program.  Accepted lessons will be incorporated into our Tapping Into Maple Tradition curriculum and will also be submitted for inclusion in the National Agricultural Curriculum Matrix.
Plainfield School 5th Annual Ag in the Classroom Day

The local 4-H Club (Bloods Brook Bale Busters) was instrumental 
i offering an afternoon of agriculture for 120 K-4 students.  The eight
interactive stations were focused on last spring's Ag in the Classroom literacy theme of apples.  All week long, they had  "Apple Week" with daily trivia for applesauce and apple juice prizes; an apple identification light board to work with in the library, and daily apple jokes during morning announcements.  The weekly school newsletter contained a pamphlet on healthy apple recipes as well as the apple cake recipe the kids tried.
