Farmers Fuel The World!

IN THIS LESSON: ENVIRONMENTALLY SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE PRACTICES



Students will learn about the environmentally sustainable agriculture practices that farmers implement, food systems and the ways in which farmers work through these systems to deliver food from farms to schools while also caring for the environment,  a specific focus will be placed on the important work that farmers do, and students will also learn about the careers available throughout food systems in the United States, including scientific, technological, and agricultural fields.


Lessons will culminate with the “Environmentally Sustainable Agriculture Practices Promotion” activity — students select an environmentally sustainable agriculture practice, choosing from the various practices they have learned about in the lesson, and build a promotion plan that includes their rationale for their selection and identifies which audience they plan to target with their awareness-building promotional efforts on (i.e., create a poster and present it to their classmates).
