- Increase agricultural literacy through K-12 education.
- An agriculturally literate person is defined as someone who understands and can communicate the source and value of agriculture as it affects our quality of life.
- Agriculture in the Classroom (AITC) programs seek to improve student achievement by applying authentic, agricultural-based content as the context to teach core curriculum concepts in science, social studies, language arts and nutrition. By encouraging teachers to embed agriculture into their classroom, AITC cultivates an understanding and appreciation of the food and fiber system that we all rely on every day.
Attention: 1st grade & 4-6th grade teachers.
