Time: 4 PM

As educators we always wonder how we can bring lasting experiences into our classrooms that provide students with life long skills. Join Regional Curriculum Specialist Sarah Kuschel and guest Amy Mastin, 2018 Outstanding Teacher Award Recipient to learn how using Minnesota Agriculture in the Classroom resources can turn into a successful school garden, classroom cattle company and more.

Customized Workshops

Customized workshops provide opportunities to gain resources and ideas for embedding authentic agricultural examples within science, social studies, math, language arts and health/nutrition curricula. Contact MAITC staff to request a in-person or virtual workshop for your group.

Workshops can be customized to fit your needs. Sample options include:

  • One-four hour workshop during an in-service day
  • 30-60 minute Interaction with a focused group such as grade-level team, PLC, etc.
  • 15-20 minute presentation during faculty meeting

The typical workshop format includes whole group activities, hands-on experience with lessons and curricula and sharing samples of our free educational resources. MN Ag in the Classroom Education Specialists share academic standards-based, ag focused activities throughout the workshop.
