Ag in the Classroom Provides Daily Activities for Families Staying at Home Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, many businesses and schools have closed down to practice social distancing. Many parents are at home with their kiddos wondering "What do we do now?" Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom has come up with some excellent daily activities you can do with your kids and family. The following is an example of some activities that Ag in the Classroom provides daily on their facebook page.

Join us on Facebook each day and share activities with your students. We would like to provide fun, educational activities for families and we need you to help spread the word! Each weekday on Facebook we will share a fun agriculture AGtivity. Here is our plan:
mAGnificent Mondays: We will highlight one of our student agriculture magazines each week.
Ag Technology Tuesdays— We will share agriculture games from either our website, My American Farm, Minnesota’s online ag games, or Kahoot.
Ag around the World Wednesday—We will share videos of agriculture from across the nation and around the world— and compare them to Oklahoma agriculture.
Thinking About Ag Thursday— Every week we will do share some kind of STEM activity.
Farm Fun Friday— Cooking, Germination, etc.

The website also provides Kahoot Ag challenges for families to play and work together.
