My American Farm- Games!

    My American Farm:  The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture’s My American Farm project teaches agricultural literacy to consumers and the public through an interactive computer game. Players learn where food comes from and how those products get from the farm to their dinner plate. My American Farm uses online educational games that let students learn about agriculture while having fun. There are games that utilize English, Math, Geography, Science and more for children in grades Pre K to  Grade 5.

Check out the following updated games to learn more about Ag!

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.
