AG in Class Kids

The Montana Agriculture in the Classroom program provides schools and communities with opportunities to learn about agriculture in a fun and effective way. The Classroom also seeks to instill appreciation for local agriculture and food production.

Some students today may not realize where their food, fiber products, and alternative energy originate. Agriculture in the Classroom is working to provide educational opportunities to discover agriculture's many benefits for today and tomorrow.

 

The Mission of the Ag Literacy Specialist is:

  • To provide teachers with timely, accurate, and integrated standards-based curriculum on Montana agriculture through “hands on, minds on” activities.
  • To encourage Montana student critical thinking about the role of agriculture in tomorrow’s world.
