Agriculture fits easily into the subject(s) you already teach! Below are some resources that will help you make connections to agriculture across the curriculum.
We have lessons and activities from pre-school to high school that are set to the New Mexico standards and benchmarks. The lessons include power points, activities and even some fun facts about New Mexico! We also have an extensive loan library available that includes educational books, DVD's and resource kits.

This kit adapted from the California Foundation for Agriculture, is designed to help explore the relationship between agriculture and commonly used items. It is an eye-opening kit for even those involved in the agriculture industry. It also provides a fun and easy way to open a conversation about the importance of agriculture. This kit is great for fairs, classroom presentations and other educational outreach venues.
