The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture has launched updates to four of its My American Farm online games. Descriptions and links to the updated games are below.
Where in the World – Students in grades three through five will explore world geography through agricultural facts.
Wild Water Adventures – Students reading at a fourth-grade level will strengthen English language arts comprehension through stories and questions on water usage.
Equipment Engineer – Students reading at a fourth-grade level will strengthen English language arts, writing and spelling skills by correcting sentences related to three different aspects of agriculture.
Farmer’s Market Challenge – Students will increase math skills by working through questions and scenarios at a farmer’s market. Two pathways are available: K to second grade and third to fifth grade.
Students who play any of the Foundation’s 25 My American Farm games earn stamps for a passport of sustainability. Just as government-issued passports for travel are used to keep track of countries visited, sustainability passports help students track their journeys through My American Farm.
The My American Farm educational 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, Corteva Agriscience, Agricultural Division of Dow DuPont. To take advantage of the free My American Farm resources, games and activities, visit http://myamericanfarm.org. Links to all of My American Farm’s classroom resources are available at www.myamericanfarm.org/classroom.
The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture was founded in 1967 and works to educate the non-farming public about the importance of agriculture and reconnect them through educational outreach and learning resources with the people who grow their food.
