Afterschool Agriculture

Welcome

This uniquely focused activity guide was developed in cooperation with curriculum experts from the National Consortium of State Agriculture in the Classroom programs, Extension 4-H professionals, and specialists from the field of childcare education. Its intent is to promote agricultural literacy among young people during out-of-school time while developing their understanding, appreciation and application of science through a variety of hands-on agriculturally based activities.

Each book in this two volume series features 40 child tested activities that can be administered in a 30 minute period with additional ideas for extending the activity time. Each activity is easily transferable across 3rd - 5th grade audiences and requires minimal resources and preparation time, making them ideal for providers with limited experience and content knowledge.
