New Hampshire Agriculture in the Classroom provides educational resources and opportunities that integrate agriculture, food, and natural resources into classrooms for K-12 students and teachers. By connecting agricultural literacy to curricular concepts, these programs promote awareness and understanding of the food, fiber, and fuel systems on which we all depend.
Annual Agricultural Literacy Program: Each year we select an agriculturally accurate book targeted towards young students - volunteers visit local classrooms to read the book, offer a supporting activity, and donate the book to the school.
School to Farm Field Trips: 4th grade students from different counties are invited to spend the day on a working farm supplemented with agricultural professionals to learn about dairy, wool, maple, bees, soils, forestry, horticulture, and other topics.
Tucker Mountain Challenge: A classroom maple syrup production contest, supported by Tapping Into Maple Tradition curriculum resources.
Resource Library: We maintain a lending library of resources including books, lessons, activities, and other materials.
Monthly Newsletter, Facebook Page, and Pinterest Board: Regular postings of new lessons and classroom ideas.
