Oregon Agriculture in the Classroom is excited to introduce our Learn About Agriculture Subscription Box program. Oregon 3rd-5th grade educators are invited to apply to learn about Oregon agriculture through these fun hands-on lessons. Each month participants will receive a box featuring an agricultural topic and the materials for an associated lesson. Applicants will be selected based on the following criteria: new to network teachers, geographical diversity and application content. See the program requirements and a complete list of lessons in the tabs below!
Deadline to apply is Friday, August 12.
Participants of the program must agree to utilize the materials in the month they are designated for as seen in the list linked below. If at any time this program no longer aligns with your classroom curriculum let us know and we will remove you from our distribution list. As a requirement of this grant, we will ask that each participant compete an evaluation at the conclusion of the program in June.
