'Ag in the Classroom: A Win for All'
This presentation will focus on methods and models of integrating STEM subjects and agricultural topics in the elementary school setting. One model is the Cluster School model of agricultural integration which we titled- Ag in the Classroom. We have created a partnership where our high school students teach our elementary students according to our state Science and Math standards, all while tying in STEM and agricultural education concepts into the lesson. Another piece of the presentation will focus on the use of an agricultural pathway to obtain our STEM certification. |
