'Three Classes, One Garden'

We will demonstrate and explain how agriculture can be incorporated into three different grade levels using three different subjects. Sixth grade math students are doing Ag Day Friday. They are using math skills to measure and map our garden. In seventh science, groups are researching vegetables and creating presentations using Google Slides to share with their class as well as the sixth and eighth grades. In eighth grade ELA, students are reading and discussing sugarcane and conservation as part of their reading program. They will write journals about their experiences growing plants using the tops and bottoms of plants.

Mini-Workshop Session (activity should be easily demonstrated in 20 minutes and will be repeated 3 times on Friday)

Biosketch: Along with my sister, Jo Ann Hebert, we have developed lessons that have enhanced our students' learning experiences. I have been teaching for 21 years. Through my agriculture lessons I have been selected as Louisiana Ag Teacher of the Year in 2014. We continue to include agriculture in our lessons so our students are always aware of how agriculture affects their lives.

Biosketch: Jo Ann Herbert has been teaching for 21 years with a great co-partner (her sister). They have developed and planned lessons over the past few years that have allowed us to be selected as Louisiana Ag Teacher of the Year and she has been selected as a National Teacher of the Year for Louisiana. Agriculture for ME is an easy resource that allows her to enrich her lessons. Students are more engaging and their love for learning is enhanced through Agriculture in the Classroom.
