Extension R.E.A.D.S. has partnered with Georgia Farm Bureau’s Agriculture in The Classroom program to promote literacy, agriculture awareness and hands-on education! The purpose of Georgia Farm Bureau’s Ag in the Classroom program is to increase agricultural literacy among children and the general public. It provides tools for more effective teaching about agriculture and its role in an interdependent society, and to assist Georgia ’s educators in implementing the instruction of agriculture-related concepts in the classroom. The Ag in the Classroom program partners with teachers and other organizations to provide free educational resources like the book of the month recommendations below.
