“Dive in! Exploring the Science of Water and Food Production,” is a new educational resource developed for students in sixth to eighth grade by the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture.
The “Dive in!” kit includes five lesson plans and is aligned to national learning standards. The kit is designed to develop 21st century competencies in students as they collaborate in learning groups, communicate key messages and use innovation to develop new solutions. Educators and classroom volunteers will find the kits engaging and easy to use.
Each lesson in the kit follows the problem-based learning method and is guided by a driving question related to natural resource production and management such as “Where does water come from?” and “How can we responsibly use water?”
The “Dive in! Exploring the science of water and food production” kit is available for purchase on agfoundation.org.
Other recently released educational materials available from the Foundation include Farm a Month, Farm to Cart and Grocery Grab.
