'SPICE Up Your Class with Agriculture'

Learn how exploring the diverse world of spices that surround us can add pizzazz to your classes by using materials that students are familiar with while increasing their interest in learning. Techniques will be demonstrated to help teach multicultural studies, art, history, science, and careers while allowing us to connect children to agriculture by showing teachers how to incorporate a variety of simple hands-on learning activities using readily available materials into the various subjects they teach. These hands-on activities help to expand problem solving, enhance observation, and stimulate student interest. Literature and resource information will be provided.
