American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture has a variety of helpful resources to assist with your next Agricultural Literacy effort. Click here to access our online catalog of resources.
The Ag Mag is a 4-page, color, tabloid-style newspaper designed for grades 3-5. Each Ag Mag uses a different agricultural theme to teach subject matter in math, science, social studies, language arts, and nutrition. All activities and information contained in the Ag Mag are aligned to the National Learning Standards for each academic area and listed on the back of the Ag Mag for the educator´s reference. The Ag Mag also has profiles in various agricultural careers that vary from their start with the producer all the way through their journey to the market place. Currently, there are eight themes from which to choose. New topics continue to be added for use in the classroom and to complement the new My American Farm game.
The Ag Mags are sold in classroom sets of 30 for $5.00 and can be ordered by visiting www.agfoundation.org and clicking on Resource Orders.
