Reply To: For Starters


Our district has a big push this year for more civics instruction, so I was hoping to get my class more involved in our community. There are a lot of farms in our town, but many students don’t understand how the agricultural industry impacts our community. I’m currently working on speaking with two farms and a restaurant (which provides farm to table food) to see if my students can visit and learn about how these industries fuel our local economy. Then, during Social Studies, when we discuss the economy, we can brainstorm ways in which we can help foster awareness about our town’s local economy.
