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 will attend a complimentary interactive field trip to our historic dairy site containing multiple musuems, farm plots and gardens, livestock, an orchard, and outdoor exhibits. Students will rotate through engaging, hands-on activities tailored to the specific unit taught.
Due to coronavirus delays, we currently plan to pilot our 4th and 5th grade programs during the 2020-2021 school year. Stay tuned for the implementation of additional grades.
Following our pilot programs, field trips will be made available to all Sacramento area classrooms.
