Robin Hillman, a third-grade teacher from Clovis, opens her Learn About Ag starter kit from the California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom. These kits are free and ship right to your door while funding is available and aim to get teachers everything they need to involve agriculture in their everyday school standards. The kits include ready-made lessons, tons of information about crops, visuals for students, and hands-on experiment plans. Request for a kit of your own while supplies last.
