Virtual Field Trips

Corn Planting Ueberrhein resized

The Ag Pen Pal Program offers a fun and interactive activity exclusively to 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade Ag Pen Pal classrooms.

This unique program brings the farm experience directly into your classroom. Using a laptop at the school and a mobile device at the farm, students are able to connect with the farmer in the front seat of a tractor and directly speak with them while they’re planting their corn.

The virtual field trips last approximately 45 min. and consist of an introduction to the farmer, description of where the field is located (distance from the classroom), and a question/answer session.
