'Weaving Together Native American Studies and Agriculture Education in Grades 3 to 5'

Explore hands-on lesson ideas that weave together Native American studies and agriculture education. Typically, Native American studies curricula in social studies are examined in past tense. The workshop would be centered on changing the narrative to present tense when teaching about Native Americans and honoring Native American cultures and traditions in regard to agriculture. Additionally, participants learn about current agriculture projects in Native American communities that can be used as resources for teachers. The workshop is aligned with the National Agricultural Literacy Outcomes and the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards.
