Take a Tour of My American Farm
It’s play time! The new enhanced version of My American Farm, the Foundation’s online interactive education program, was launched in January 2011 at the American Farm Bureau Federation annual meeting. One of the top goals with this new version was to create more games and activities for kids to learn from and enjoy.
The Foundation has expanded the original five games in My American Farm to twelve and added educator resources, family activities, videos and loads of other new features.
We’ve more than doubled the activities and resources available on www.myamericanfarm.org. We’ve also made the website more appealing for kids, as well as their parents and teachers. The games and activities are targeted to students in grades three through five. The new resources include: videos, family activities and teacher resources.
All of the games and other activities on My American Farm are subject-matter focused and agriculturally themed, meaning that each activity helps teach subjects such as math, science, social studies, language arts and health by using agricultural themes.
Also all of the resources on My American Farm are free – a fact made possible by the sponsorship of Pioneer a DuPont Business. Pioneer pledged nearly a year ago that it would donate $500,000 over three years to support the project.
