Virtual Ag Classroom
Welcome to our first week of virtual learning! We are in a difficult but temporary season and for the foreseeable future we will be learning online. While this can seem daunting, we hope these resources will be easy to use and educational!
Each week we will introduce a new theme on our Linn County Facebook page with a read-aloud book, activity sheets (downloads available on our website), STEM activity and video.
Themes include; pizza, pollinators, beef, transportation, pork, farmers market, wheat, planting, careers, and sustainability.
First week: PIZZA!
We would love to see your participation! Share your photos with us by posting them in the comments section or by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
