Ag in the Classroom
The future of California Almonds is in the hands of the next generation. That’s why Almond Board of California is committed to sharing how almonds are grown and processed with kids across the state through a fun and interactive program known as Ag in the Classroom.
Almond Board of California (ABC) offers several resources explaining how almonds grow, the history of California Almonds and the many ways to enjoy the versatile nut. These resources are designed to give elementary students a better understanding of where their food comes from and to expand their knowledge of agriculture, the environment and natural resources.
These educational materials were developed with the support of the California Foundation for Ag in the Classroom. Visit their website for more ag education resources and to find events happening in your area.
When students make a personal connection with some of California’s farmers who grow the food they see in the supermarket or on their plates, they can get excited about eating more nutrient-rich foods – something California is known for supplying. Using ‘An Almond Story,’ Almond Board gives students a backstage pass to view the amazing process that brings almonds from tree to table.
