Farm Academy Live is a¬†FREE, interactive, video conferencing program built to meet the Common Core State Standards for grades 3-4. Each lesson provides students with a hands-on, engaging activity. Raw products are sent directly into the classroom for the students to physically touch and see. Using the latest video conferencing technology, the 45-60 minute lessons are taught by the Farm Academy Live teacher. The courses offered are, “Milk: From the Dairy to Your Door,” “Cotton: From the Field to Your Family,” and “Food and Nutrition: From Fork to Farm.” Farm Academy Live provides students with a virtual field trip to an agricultural destination. This opportunity allows them to experience, firsthand, agricultural production and processing methods they may never be able to experience otherwise. Students will learn about where their food and fiber comes from, and meet the farmers who produce the products they have grown to love.
