Ag in the Classroom


Agriculture in the classroom is a nationwide program to help students in grades K-12 gain a broad-based knowledge of the food and fiber system. Agriculture is the number one industry in the state and over 400,000 Kentucky jobs are agriculture-related.

Regional Teacher Workshops - For nearly twenty years, Kentucky Farm Bureau has provided educators with a variety of teacher training and professional development opportunities designed to better enable participants to incorporate agriculture into their daily core curricula. More specifically, teachers learn the value of using agricultural related material to teach Mathematics, Social Studies, English and Science through real life application.

 Lending Library - resources including KERA-based lesson plans, thematic units, bulletin boards, games, puzzles, activity booklets, toy farm implements, videos, fiction and non-fiction books--all available for fall instructional units.

  Farm Bureau Volunteers - Assist in planning farm tours and school ag fairs, make classroom presentations and inform you about new ag education programs.

      Lesson Plans - Packets of lesson plans (Preschool, K-3, 4-6, 7-8, 9-12) developed around agriculture themes and the six KERA learner goals. Resource topics include food sourcing, consumerism, economics, animal welfare and the environment. (Project Food, Land and People)

 Ag Ambassadors - Be an ag contact for your school! Receive program updates and assist in the distribution of materials to fellow teachers.

 Adopt A Classroom - Programs have farm families and other agriculturalists "adopt" classrooms through exchanges of letters, videos, photos, field trips and farmer classroom visits.

 Youth Activities - Farm Bureau provides opportunities from county to state levels for young people to compete for scholarships, cash awards and other prizes such as a Congressional Tour through the Outstanding Farm Bureau Youth and Variety Contests. Farm Bureau also supports 4-H, FFA, and IFAL (Institute for Future Agricultural Leaders).

 Agriculture - Kentucky's Growth Machine

·      Farming generates more than $17 billion in economic activity per year in our state.

·      Our farmers pay more than $200 million a year in wages and over $50 million in property taxes.

·      65% of Kentucky's land is classified as cropland.

·      98% of our farms are owned by families.

·      Kentucky agriculture is diverse: we have 8 farm commodities with annual sales of more than $100 million...tobacco, corn, soybeans, dairy, cattle, hogs, horses, poultry.

·      Our farmers spend nearly $2 billion a year for production expenses.

·      Over 400,000 Kentucky jobs are agriculture-related.

Then sit down together for some fresh and yummy home-cooked food. Think food justice is too tricky for kids? Think again. What's On Your Plate? proves that not only can kids understand the issues, they can actually teach other kids about how they are what they eat. The film follows two eleven-year-old multi-racial city kids as they explore their place in the food chain. Sadie and Safiyah take a close look at food systems in New York City and its surrounding areas. With the camera as their companion, the girl guides talk to each other, food activists, farmers, new friends, storekeepers, their families, and the viewer, in their quest to understand what?s on all of our plates. According to Michael Pollan: ""What's On Your Plate?" is exactly the film we need now." And Alice Waters says: "It was an amazing experience to hear kids talking about these issues. This movie can have a real impact on the way we think about what we?re eating." Don't miss this chance to see this witty and provocative film on national television! Join in the conversation on how we can change what we eat, and in the process, change our world.
