The Kentucky Agriculture & Environment in the Classroom encourages teachers to integrate agriculture-related concepts into every day lessons. We cannot live without it, so why not remind our students how farming touches our lives and will impact their future?
We also know that you are short on time and have a lot on your minds right now, so we have put together a list of 5-minute activities you can use to help us celebrate National Ag Day, Tuesday, March 20!
Just tag a picture or a description of your #AgDay18 lesson with #teachkyag and/or #5forfarmers on your favorite social media channel.
Watch the Kentucky Agriculture: Our Food, Our Farms, Our Future
This 5-minute video gives an overview of Kentucky agriculture history, the land, and the products grown in Kentucky. Best for students in Grades 3+. If you need a digital copy of the video, download it here.
These are just a few activities you may be able to easily incorporate in to National Ag Day. If you'd like to spend more time teaching about our food and farms, check out our teacher resources page for several Kentucky Academic Standards-aligned lessons.
Don't forget to share what you are doing with us! - #teachkyag #5forfarmers #AgDay18
