Beyond the Farm Circle Experience

Want to go in more depth about agriculture with your students? Following or as an alternative to Whatcom Farm Circle, we are now offering a Whatcom Agriculture Curriculum that aligns with 3rd and 4th grade Science, Math, English, and Social Studies Standards.

The purpose of the Whatcom Agriculture Units will be to provide local and applicable resources for teachers. These 4 part lesson plans provides an array of teaching strategies and activities. In addition, the various activities supplement other learning standards for teachers to practice with their students such as graphing, finding locations on a map, and reading comprehension. All aspects of the lesson are focused on Whatcom County red raspberry production and Whatcom County dairy production. In the future, we hope to create more local agriculture lesson plans beyond the 3rd grade level. Click the links below to explore the lesson plans now.
