Agriculture In The Classroom is an educational program created in 1981 to promote agricultural literacy among the nation’s students. Linda Davis, an State Volunteer for Tennessee, explains how the program educates teachers and students.
The program encourages students to explore the critical role the U.S. agricultural system plays in their lives by incorporating agriculture into the regular teaching curriculum. Davis says Ag in the classroom gives students the opportunity to use fun exercises with an agricultural twist to learn all their basic subjects.
Integrating agriculture into teaching and learning will hopefully ensure that our nation remains aware of the importance of the industry. Davis describes the importance of the program’s goals and says Ag In The Classroom is needed now more than ever.
