“This website is now an even more powerful new tool to help you learn more about agriculture, your state’s most important industry,” Agriculture Commissioner Goehring told the students at Will-Moore Elementary School. “It will also help you learn where your food comes from and how you can make healthy food choices.” Agriculture in the Classroom programs provide teachers with curricula and class lesson development materials, training seminars, a magazine, website and other tools to make agriculture part of the school day.
The North Dakota Agriculture in the Classroom website can be found at www.ndaginclassroom.org. The website is administered by the North Dakota Department of Agriculture Marketing and Information Division.
