With all the online games out there, you may not have heard about the game that allows you to get a Certificate of Sustainability for your online farm. The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture
has set up an online, informational farming site that has games that teach players about farming in the U.S.
"The My American Farm virtual education program is anticipated to engage millions of youth, teachers and parents over the next five years through unique educational experiences," said Pioneer Hi-Bred
in a news release about the program. "The website, www.myamericanfarm.org
, is a destination for children to be entertained by playing games while learning math, social studies, language arts and science in the context of agriculture and food production. The program provides high-quality educational resources for educators as well, adding to the materials provided by Farm Bureau's highly successful Ag in the Classroom
This game allows any user to test their knowledge about agriculture and have a little fun while they are at it. Are there other games that could be used to educate consumers and help bridge the gap for city/urban dwellers and modern agriculture? What do you think?
