Teacher Resources

Hands-on learning experiences are always best when students have been prepared for what they are about to encounter and are able to then discuss what they learn afterwards.

 

We are pleased to offer grade-level appropriate PowerPoint presentations, worksheets and activities for most educational programs offered at the Farm. They are designed to support -

  • Understanding cells
  • Interdependence
  • Flow of matter and energy
  • Heredity
  • Biodiversity

Upon scheduling your field trip, you will receive a password allowing you to download the links found on our Teaching Resources page.
