If the upcoming spring showers have you cooped up inside, spend a day learning about agriculture through the American Farm Bureau Foundation My American Farm games. Take a journey and experience the interactive, online games, which educate as they entertain. The My American Farm project teaches children about farming and how their food is produced though interactive computer games where. Portions of the site are also built for educators and families of children with free, downloadable lessons and agricultural activities to explore.
Visit www.myamericanfarm.org to check out the games – from Ag Across America to Wild Water Adventure – as well as educator resources and fun family activities.
The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture strives to be a credible source for agricultural literacy information. The materials and programs are designed to reflect reliable information and meet today’s standards of learning.
At the recent American Farm Bureau Federation Young Farmers & Ranchers Conference in Phoenix, Arizona, the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation was awarded a My American Farm kiosk. The kiosk features the educational games and resources from the website, sponsored by DuPont Pioneer. The kiosk will be unveiled at the Rochester Children’s Museum for a four-month exhibit with the Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation Ag Cab Lab beginning March 27. Learn more at rochester.mcm.org.
