Elementary Programs

Several agriculture-themed, standards-aligned curricula and field trip programs are under development for elementary students.  Each unit includes a teacher training as well as a curriculum kit containing all consumables or materials needed to conduct the investigations and activities.  Following the implementation of the curriculum, classes attend a complimentary interactive field trip to our historic dairy site and visit multiple museums, farm plots and gardens, livestock, an orchard, and outdoor exhibits.  Students will rotate through engaging, hands-on activities tailored to the specific unit taught.  

We are piloting our 4th and 5th grade programs during the 2019-2020 school year, an​​d our 3rd and multi-grade programs during the 2020-2021 school year. Following our pilot programs, field trips will be made available to all Sacramento area classrooms. If you are interested in serving as a pilot teacher, please contact Patti Sipula:  916-892-2211,  (redacted)
