Loess Hills Ag in the Classroom

December 19, 2019

K-3 students at CR-B Elementary have been learning about agriculture this year through the Loess Hills Ag in the Classroom Program.  Melanie Bruck, their Education Program Coordinator, has been visiting classrooms once a month presenting lessons.  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 embedding agriculture into curriculum, AITC cultivates an understanding and appreciation of the food and fiber system that we rely on every day.  We are looking forward to having Melanie continue her visits through the rest of this school year.  For more information, visit the Iowa Ag Literacy Foundation at www.iaagliteracy.org and on Facebook and Twitter.
