Teachers in Minnesota are finding a new focus for “hands-on” learning for their students. The Minnesota Agriculture in the Classroom program, according to AgriNews, provides free agriculture-related resources, professional development and grants to teachers.
One of the education specialists for MAITC, Sue Knott, has trained both new and old teachers in “agricultural literacy.”.
Many of the lessons tie in with science and math. Giving students the opportunity to learn through agriculture is one way to educate them about jobs in the field and relate learning to real-world experiences, all while meeting state standards for education.
