NC AITC Going Local! K-8 Teacher
Join us for an informative workshop and gain knowledge and resources while you explore a North Carolina field crop farm in Yadkin County. This workshop offers classroom-ready activities and lesson plans aligned directly to the State Common Core Standards and State Essential Standards. It will focus on several unique aspects of agriculture with exploration of poultry, tobacco, and row crop (corn, soybeans, and wheat) production. Hunter Farms also specializes in beef cattle. Each workshop will also include an informative session from local Kenan Fellows that will share their fellowship project regarding agriculture integration as community outreach. Teachers will leave better prepared to educate students and to help them understand the sources of their food and fiber native to their local school district. This venue will set the stage for a real-world North Carolina Farm Bureau Ag in the Classroom experience thanks to our members from Yadkin County Farm Bureau.
