The Ag in the Classroom program assists teachers in teaching children about the importance of agriculture and gives them a better understanding of how the food and fiber system affects their lives. Ag in the Classroom curriculum has been developed for grades Pre K-8th, and the division conducts teacher training through workshops and in-service programs held at many sites across the state. Lesson plans are available from the website below to assist teachers in Agriculture related studies.
The Department's mission as facilitator of the program state-wide is to work toward the goal of sustainability for Oklahoma agriculture by meeting the identified needs and support the creativity of Oklahoma's underserved farmers and ranchers. Included are on-site demonstrations, workshops, field trips, and speaker presentations on diverse topics with many farmers, ranchers, agencies, academic, non-profit and local partners.
