New farm game and lesson plan aims to ‘help students understand’ poultry and egg industry
The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture and the U.S. Poultry and Egg Association have launched a new game and lesson plan that aims to “help students understand” the poultry and egg industry.
My American Farm comes with a supporting lesson plan, eComic and activity sheet.
In the game, students will adventure through the progression of stages in poultry and egg production—we assume not all of them.
Christy Lilja, executive director of the Foundation said:
“This game is unique to our My American Farm collection because of its focus on both math fluency in the problems presented to students, but then pushing them to critically think about what the answers to those math problems mean in each poultry and egg production phase.
“The lesson plan then takes the understanding of poultry and egg production one step further as it encourages students to think about the careers in each stage of production.
“It is our hope that, through this game and the supporting resources, students will consider the poultry and egg industry an exciting option for their future career.”
