Teachers Learn During Coop Day

Posted: Updated:

A group of about 35 teachers pounded the pavement of the North Dakota State Fairgrounds this afternoon.

They are part of a new initiative to make agriculture in the classroom more fun and interesting to students.

Educators participated in scavenger hunts, lectures and heard from farming experts, in hopes that they can pass the wisdom on at school.

(Rich Feldner, Director Ag in the Classroom) "We don't have as many young generations on the farm as we use to. We are losing the numbers of farms, and it's important for the young people to get an education, and to remember where all the agricultural products come from. That steak on your table just didn't come from the grocery store. The loaf of bread just didn't come from the grocery store. It cam from somewhere, and it's important to get out and let them know where it's from."
