Discover MN AgMag: An Engaging Agricultural Magazine for Students
We are dedicated to promoting agricultural literacy among students and fostering a deep understanding and appreciation of the food, fuel and fiber system. One of the Minnesota Agriculture in the Classroom (MAITC) flagship programs, MN AgMag, plays a vital role in achieving this mission.
What is MN AgMag?
MN AgMag is an innovative program offered by Minnesota Agriculture in the Classroom that aims to increase agricultural literacy by providing free curriculum resources to educators across Minnesota. What originally started as a once-a-year agricultural magazine for students is now a print and digitized asset for kindergarten through sixth grade classrooms with spring and fall editions for each grade level. Educators can easily connect what they need for curriculum standards with the free Agriculture in the Classroom resources, such as the AgMags and the curriculum matrix.
