Indiana Agriculture in the Classroom

Indiana AITC_AgDay_Kids and pigletYoung Voices

Agriculture in the Classroom is a grassroots agricultural outreach program for school children in grades Pre-K through 12, facilitated by Indiana Farm Bureau and coordinated nationwide by the United States Department of Agriculture. This program helps kids understand where the food they eat is grown and how important farmers are to their daily lives.

Each year, registered volunteers all across Indiana visit classrooms to teach more than 60,000 students about agriculture through in-class lessons, hands-on activities, educational events, on-farm experiences and field trips.  

The Indiana Agriculture in the Classroom program offers standards-based lessons and materials, many free of charge, to schools, community groups, and other non-profit organizations that wish to integrate agriculture into their curriculum.
