November: Understanding Agriculture's Piece of the Pie!

Pizza Pie that is!

Today I had the opportunity to give my first lesson to the 2011-2012 4th grade class I was allowed to adopt.  We had a great session on how everything that goes into making pizza comes from Agriculture.

I found a great lesson plan that North Dakota Farm Bureau has posted on their website.  We went through a power point presentation on all the parts of the pizza and how they are related to agriculture.  Students were surprised to hear that each ingredient had a tie to agriculture's vast industry.

From the wheat that makes the crust to the dairy cow that makes the cheese we discovered many aspects of agriculture and had a great first time over view of the industry.

In the following months I will get into more specific sectors of Agriculture, can't wait to see what this group has in store!
