The Nebraska AgMag series supports Nebraska fourth grade content area standards for language arts, social studies, and science. This learning tool will introduce new, non-fiction text to serve as a large class discussion piece, an activity for small groups or individuals, or an at-home enrichment resource.

Agriculture touches every part of our lives, from what we eat and drink, to what we wear and the products we use. In Nebraska, agriculture creates 1 in 4 jobs. With AgMag, students can explore Nebraska through the lens of the food, fiber, and fuel system that benefits us all each day.
