‘My Little Ag Me’ Game Invites K-2 Students to Explore

WASHINGTON, D.C., February 21, 2012 – The popular agricultural gaming site MyAmericanFarm.org just released an enhanced version of an engaging game, My Little Ag Me.

My Little Ag Me is a fun, scenario-based game that introduces young learners to careers in agriculture. The enhanced version offers users the chance to choose from more avatars for game play, as well as new careers for exploration.

Students select from 10 diverse career areas, as they discover what it might be like to be in an agriculturally related field such as farming, cattle ranching, or being an agricultural marketing designer. After answering enough questions, learners “Meet an Expert” as they click to listen to a fictional interview with a career leader. Students are then rewarded with a new stamp to add to their Passport for Sustainability – the tool that helps youth keep track of their journey through the various My American Farm online games.

The My American Farm educational gaming resource is a special project of the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture. The site and resources are made possible through the generous support of title sponsor, Pioneer Hi-Bred, a DuPont business. To take advantage of the free My American Farm resources, games, and activities, visit www.myamericanfarm.org.
