Buckeye Farm News
OFBF is offering an education resource specifically for teachers. The Teacher’s Lounge newsletter contains resources from OFBF and related groups to help apply agriculture in lesson plans. Ideas based upon current events, local field trip possibilities, conference and workshop information, up-to-date agriculture statistics and the latest classroom resources are some of the items available.
Relevant to any grade level, Teacher’s Lounge is sent via e-mail bimonthly, and an abbreviated version appears in Our Ohio magazine. PDF versions are at www.OurOhio.org under “Food/Families,” then “Teacher’s Lounge.”
The information is easily accessed, but OFBF is looking for assistance from Farm Bureau members to get the newsletter to as many teachers as possible.
“It’s important that Farm Bureau members help us contact teachers who they think would benefit from Ag in the Classroom materials and events,” said Judy Roush, OFBF education specialist. “If they can supply us with teachers’ names, schools and e-mail addresses, we can start to build relationships with those teachers.”
For more information, e-mail Judy Roush at [email protected] or call 614- 246-2743. Print copies of Teacher’s Lounge may also be ordered through county Farm Bureau offices.
