Ag Literacy in the Classroom
This year with the help of Mrs. Sarah Purcell with the UNL Extension Office third grade was able to do some interactive science lessons to help bring Agricultural Literacy into the classroom. These lessons were done throughout the year in addition to third grade science curriculum. Some topics covered were what farmers can bring to the table: from field to farm table, plant life cycles: the pumpkin process, and many others. Students stated that they never knew "that cornfield is more important than I thought!" Third grade was very thankful for Mrs. Purcell and hope to keep her coming back for many years.
