What to do about snow days? No worries! GrowNextGen and the Columbus Council on World Affairs have put together a package of great global resources to keep your students engaged and learning whether school’s open or not!

Here are the resources included:

  • E-learning courses on Soy Protein and World Hunger and Aquaculture and Soy Protein
  • Career videos on Global Aquaculture and International Agriculture Development
  • Webquests analyzing career pathways, job requirements, agriculture company websites, industry leader profiles and infographics

After using these resources, students will synthesize what they’ve learned in a visual presentation of information.

Just listen to these suggestions from some of our Teacher leaders:

Whitney Short

Agriscience Teacher and FFA Advisor, Anthony Wayne High School and Penta Career Center Satellite

“Both videos are excellent for the Business Management and Global Economics & Food Markets classes within the Agricultural Education curriculum. Additionally, I like using the global aquaculture in classes like Animal & Plant Biotechnology and AFNR. They give unique perspectives into careers that our students do not typically think of,and help them broaden their views of the careers within agriculture.”

Jennifer Foudray

Food Science and Plant and Animal Biotech instructor, Global Impact STEM Academy

“I used the e-learning courses on soy protein and world hunger. The students liked how they were able to pace themselves. I liked how they had a pre- and post test to go along with the content. I used it as an introduction for students who are writing the World Food Prize Paper.” 

Jeremy Grove

Agriscience Instructor, East Technical High School in Cleveland 

“When winter weather hits, teachers need plans for assignments that can be completed at home or as make-up work. This blizzard bag package makes your job easier. While most other teachers in the school struggled to determine what they could use for blizzard bags last year, I knew that the GrowNextGen website would be be my key to making sure students were still learning while they were out of school.”
