WDC Contacts return from Regional meeting with new resources

Co-State Contacts Joan C. Smith and Amanda Brozana Rios recently returned from a three-day Eastern Region meeting of Ag in the Classroom leaders. At the conference, they learned about resources available for all teachers interested in incorporating agriculture into their curriculum, about problem-based learning, phenomenon learning and learned what other states are doing to help teachers.

They also learned about several inexpensive kits available for classrooms available through the Ag Classroom Store. Keep checking back for scholarship or grant opportunities for teachers in the district to take advantage of resources for your classroom.
