The Arizona Farm Bureau Agriculture in the Classroom Program develops and implements curriculum and programs, aligned to the state learning standards to help students and teachers be successful, while increasing agricultural awareness in K-12 classrooms and beyond.
FARM FRIDAY FUN WITH ARIZONA AGRICULTURE
Learn about where your food comes from first hand! Each month students can learn about one of Arizona's agricultural commodities. Through this digital curriculum package, teachers will receive a profile on an Arizona Farm Family, facts about the commodity of the month, a short video about the month's crop, and an accompanying lesson plan. Participating teachers will also receive a pdf of the Fruit and Veggie Ag Mag and the Arizona Specialty Crops Ag Mag. This year's program will celebrate Arizona's agricultural heritage by partnering with the Arizona Farming and Ranching Hall of Fame to offer farm and ranch profiles from those who have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Purple Plow STEM Challenge
Students can learn about important issues related to water and work to create a solution that could win their class a 3D Printer! This year's question is "How can we improve the quality of our runoff and, in turn, reduce dead zones in our water resources." For more information, visit the challenge page HERE.
Submissions are due by 11:59 EST on May 15th.
