Food & Ag Resource Guide for Educators AvailableThu, 15 Oct 2015 14:40:53 CDT
The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture has released a new Food & Ag Resource Guide, a curated list that features top recommended resources by age group. The guide is designed to encourage agricultural literacy for young rural and urban students and to teach them about the importance of agriculture.
The resource guide is intended to offer an easy way for educators and ag literacy coordinators to find the latest resources on the web.
“People in the agricultural community are often invited into local classrooms but do not have access to resources appropriate for students,” said Julie Tesch, executive director of the Foundation. “The Food & Ag Resource Guide provides appropriate and accurate activities and resources developed to help students learn about agriculture.”
The top-rated resources will be recognized at the American Farm Bureau Federation’s Annual Convention each year. The goal of the guide is to save educators time and energy by bringing the most relevant resources to their attention.
The guide provides a unique, easy-to-navigate source of activities that will be reviewed, commented on and rated by educators. Each year new submissions will be considered and the guide will be updated with the top 10 resources in each age group and area. The resources will be selected based on their ability to communicate key messages about the agriculture industry, as introduced in the Pillars of Agricultural Literacy.

The mission of the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture is to build awareness, understanding and a positive public perception of agriculture through education.
