Students kindergarten through 12th grade will have the opportunity to learn how grains are grown, harvested, and processed with the help of the National Agriculture in the Classroom Organization (NAITCO). “Harvesting: Crops & Careers” is a series of lessons developed through a seven-lesson series, and students will be exposed to new technologies and a variety of careers that involve producing and harvesting grain crops. The lessons are organized by age group and are designed to introduce students to new aspects of producing important American crops as a career.

The curriculum and more can be viewed at www.AgClassroom.org/teacher/themes.htm.
