The U.S. Poultry and Egg Association and the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture have launched My American Farm game together with a lesson plan, activity sheet and comic. The Poultry Adventure game was developed to help students in 3rd through 5th grade to understand poultry and egg production.
Barbara Jenkins, Executive Director of USPOULTRY Foundation stated “We are thrilled to collaborate with the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture to share more about poultry and egg production with elementary students”. She added “As we strengthen our youth outreach efforts, this collaboration is just one of the many ways to reach elementary school-age students to help form their positive opinion of our industry”.
Christy Lilja, Executive Director of the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture stated “This game is unique to our My American Farm collection because of the focus on both math fluency and the problems presented to students by pushing them to critically think about what the answers to those math problems mean in each poultry and egg production phase”.
