IN THE CLASSROOM
Today, a vast majority of Ohio students do not have a meaningful connection to agriculture and have little if any understanding of where thier food really comes from.
The Ohio Poultry Association (OPA) supports agriculture education and provides programs and other initiatives for students, teachers and families, developed and delivered by experienced teachers. OPA provides downloadable materials for classroom use, video presentations about Ohio's egg sector and targeted in-classroom programming aligned with Ohio's state curriculum standards.
Specific offerings include, but aren't limited to:
- 4th grade scientific inquiry lessons
- Hands-on science opportunities
- Egg incubation and hatching classroom demonstrations (partnership with Ohio 4-H)
- Teacher training and professional development
Materials are available by download or by ordering hard copies through the Ohio Poultry Association. Classroom visits are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
