Nebraska Agriculture in the Classroom would like to introduce you to its newest resource!
The Nebraska AgMag series supports Nebraska fourth grade content area standards for language arts, social studies, and science. This learning tool will introduce new, non-fiction text to serve as a large class discussion piece, an activity for small groups or individuals, or an at-home enrichment resource.
Teaching about agriculture brings learning to life. In the second AgMag edition, Protecting Our Environment, students will view how farmers and ranchers care for the land and livestock across the state of Nebraska, while recognizing how that care relates to consumers. Agriculture touches every part of our lives, from what we eat and drink, to what we wear and the products we use. In Nebraska, agriculture creates 1 in 4 jobs. With AgMag, students can explore Nebraska through the lens of the food, fiber, and fuel system that benefits us all each day.
Due to a limited quanity of hard copies only fourth grade teachers in Nebraska can request physical copies of the AgMag. You can download a PDF of the AgMag here.
