Why use agriculture to teach core learning?

Agriculture connects people. Farms and ranches are everywhere in our nation. Agricultural businesses are in towns, cities, and communities in every part of Nebraska. In Nebraska, agriculture creates one in four jobs – jobs that your students can one day be involved in. The bottom line is, agriculture is an important industry for all of us and provides a rich context for learning about Nebraska’s past and present, the economy, lifestyles, the environment, and so much more.
