Lesson Plans

The California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom takes pride in the variety of resources it offers to educators and students. Periodically, materials are revised or removed from general circulation. The lesson plans in this "Archives" section are sound educational pieces which will enhance your teaching. However, they are not listed on the main lesson plan section solely because they are not aligned to the current Content Standards for California Public Schools nor do they contain the most current statistics or contact information.
