NHAITC has a library full of resources for teachers to help you integrate agricultural topics into your curriculum. Some resources are complete manuals with detailed lesson plans and links to state and federal curriculum standards. On other subjects we have a wealth of information about the topic, which can help you develop your own lessons. In addition to informational material, we have videos and story books related to some themes.
We are in the process of updating our Resource Library to provide a broader range of information with links to online resources. Be sure to keep checking back as we will be adding topics and materials on a regular basis. Where appropriate, many of the lessons and activities are aligned to Common Core Standards, STEM and the Next Generation Science Standards. Please note that some of the resources have been developed by other states and may include information pertinent to their region. When possible, we will be updating these items to reflect New Hampshire agriculture.
The National Agricultural Literacy Curriculum Matrix is an online, searchable, and standards-based curriculum map for K-12 teachers.
Check-out our online resources which blend various agricultural concepts with core curriculum concepts. If you are looking for something specific, send us an email with the details. We may have just what you need in our lending library of texts, props and other resources.
This is a partial list of printed materials available for loan from our office.
Each year we offer a Spring Literacy Program where we choose an agriculturally accurate book and send volunteers into schools throughout the state to read the book and to share related information with the students.
