New Cotton Game Sprouting on My American Farm Platform

Tue, 16 Nov 2021 14:54:45 CST

New Cotton Game Sprouting on My American Farm Platform The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture is expanding the lineup of popular educational games on its My American Farm platform with a new game that introduces players to how cotton is planted, grown, cared for, harvested and turned into clothes.

The game, titled “From Seed to Shirt,” is generously sponsored by Nichino America and encourages players to solve math problems to earn clothes for their in-game character. From Seed to Shirt is best for students in third through fifth grade.

“From Seed to Shirt is an excellent addition to My American Farm as it incorporates science, math, technology and sustainability into an engaging game,” said Daniel Meloy, executive director of the Foundation. “Students will really enjoy earning fun clothing items to dress their character in their own personal style while learning what it takes for cotton to go from a seed in the ground to a shirt in their closet.”

My American Farm is an online game and educational resource platform that offers more than 24 free games for students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Each game is aligned to a learning standard and a Pillar of Agricultural Literacy. The website also features videos, economic insights about agriculture, family activities and lesson plans, making My American Farm the perfect one-stop shop for ag literacy leaders looking for free, easy-to-use educational resources.
The My American Farm platform is sponsored by Corteva.
The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture aims to build awareness, understanding, and a positive public perception of agriculture through education by offering learning opportunities, educational resources and a selection of accurate books about agriculture.
