Andy Losik, educator extraordinaire who works with Hamilton, Michigan’s Infotech program, posted a fantastic blog about Discovering Farmland. We partnered with the United State Farmers and Ranchers Alliance to share videos and print resources that help teachers talk to students about the importance of agriculture, farming and ranching.
Through video and print resources, the site is broken into four lessons (45-60 minutes each) that explore a wide array of farming and ranching topics that are important to not only the sustainability of the industry but also our food supply and the cultural heritage of farming and ranching that has been a part of America since its first settlers.
He lists seven things that educators will love about the site, including lesson plans, videos, and all the resources teachers might need to incorporate it in the classroom. Visit Andy’s blog to check out the full list!
