The Wisconsin Ag in the Classroom Program has the updated 2021 Wisconsin Farm Facts brochures, bookmarks and other related resources available for teachers, students and volunteer to use. The annual brochure highlights the top 10 commodities, where Wisconsin ranks nationally, features other agricultural and jobs statistics, and has an annual feature. This year honey and maple syrup are featured on both the brochure and bookmarks.
Wisconsin Ag in the Classroom also has a PowerPoint presentation, lesson plans, resources and activities available for classroom use. A collection of videos about honey and maple syrup is also on the Wisconsin Ag in the Classroom’s YouTube channel playlist for the Wisconsin Farm Facts project: www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLUvmuVa0n1QL55WOPKLDcAVaru_8PALN6.
Along with the Wisconsin Farm Facts resources, an updated Fun Facts about Wisconsin Agriculture is also available for younger grade levels.
