Living Ag Classroom Events go Virtual in 2021

Posted: Apr 19 2021

Each spring the Living Ag Classroom travels across North Dakota with more than 5,000 fourth and fifth graders in attendance. While in-person Living Ag Classrooms were not held this spring, the commodity groups, agencies and associations that teach students have put their presentations into an online resource housed on the North Dakota Department of Agriculture’s Agriculture in the Classroom website. 

“Teachers from across the state are invited to utilize the videos, North Dakota Ag Mags and resources with their students,” Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring said, “Kids enjoy seeing where their food comes from and how animals are cared for. The Living Ag Classroom is an excellent tool for the teachers in our state.” Some of the resources serve as stand-alone lessons, while others can be used to supplement other classroom activities. 
The North Dakota Wheat Commission’s video focuses on educating students on the classes of wheat grown in the state, uses for wheat, the process of milling wheat into flour to make food products, and export markets.  The Living Ag Classroom presentations may be found on the North Dakota Agriculture in the Classroom website at www.nd.gov/ndda/ag-classroom/living-ag-classroom.
