'Every State Has an "Ag-cent"'

Learn how to showcase your state's "Ag-cent," and how the varying and diverse commodities across your state affect daily life. Being from Georgia, I utilized this approach to weave Georgia agriculture into my weekly lessons. Utilizing virtual field trips to "visit" farms, we can offer students an opportunity to explore different geographic regions, learn about different commodities, "meet" and "thank" the farmers that provide, and use their commodities in a hands-on "lab" either through cooking or creating.

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