Ag in the Classroom

Agriculture is an important part of everyone’s life. Clothing, food, fuel, housing, medicine, and much more are rooted in agriculture. Educators across the country are effectively integrating agriculture into the curriculum. Agriculture has no subject matter boundaries and can become a part of social studies, language arts, science, math, environmental education, art, music, or in a combination of areas that effectively integrate key agricultural principles.


The National Agricultural Literacy Curriculum Matrix is an online, searchable, and standards-based curriculum map for K-12 teachers. The Matrix contextualizes national education standards in science, social studies, and nutrition education with relevant instructional resources linked to Common Core Standards.

The Missouri Farm Bureau has long been a leader in the national Agriculture in the Classroom program. Missouri Farm Bureau and Missouri State University have cooperated in their educational efforts  for many years. Our goal is to present agriculturally accurate Web Quests for school classrooms. Welcome to your source for Agricultural Web Quests.

The Missouri Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture offers mini-grants of up to $250 for use in classrooms K through 12. Teachers must submit an application and those selected can use the grant to enhance agricultural learning in their classroom.
