Mobile iGrow Educational displays have been making the rounds to Hall County elementary schools! These hands-on displays focus on two of the mainstays of Nebraska Agriculture – CORN and BEEF. Each interactive display includes a teaching guide, hands-on activities, and an iGrow activity worksheet, targeting elementary students.
The displays are like a “mini-field trip” at the school” reported one teacher. Focused on Nebraska school standards in math, social studies, and STEM, the displays increase students’ knowledge of corn & beef, where our food comes from, careers, and how agriculture is important in our everyday lives.
