As we continue to adapt to sheltering at home, parents may be looking for some new activities to keep kids entertained and engaged. Illinois Ag In The Classroom has several activities available that not only educate, but also provide insights into agriculture.
Jennifer Fink is the Ag Literacy Coordinator at the Macon County Farm Bureau. She encourages families to look into the online resources at Ag In The Classroom (dot) org.
According to Fink, they've taken things a step further in Macon County. She explains that the farm bureau is providing take home resources - called Ag Mags - to parents at food pick up points thru local school districts.
You can view the Ag Mag selection online at MaconCFB.org, and contact Jennifer Fink to learn more. Again, the website for the online resources from Illinois Ag In The Classroom is Ag In The Classroom (dot) org.
