WASHINGTON, D.C. – Educator guides for Food and Farm Facts, the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture’s 32-page, full-color book of facts and easy-to-read infographics, are now available for grades 4-6 and 7-12.
Each guide features a collection of 12 easy-to-implement activities developed using national learning standards that reflect the knowledge and skills young people need for success in college and careers. Curriculum areas include math, science, social science, health and language arts.
The guides are 9” x 6” booklets with activity cards on a key ring. Each activity card includes step-by-step instructions, discussion questions and an estimated time for completion. The cost per booklet is $6.
A new Food and Farm Facts trivia card set also is available for $10.
