Students from kindergarten to 6th grade at Ann LeTort Elementary School had the opportunity to experience a science lab lesson in the PA Farm Bureau’s Mobile Ag Ed Science Lab. The mobile classroom lab, complete with all supplies and a certified teacher, teaches science lessons based on students’ grade levels. The lessons meet the Pennsylvania Department of Education Science & Technology and Environment & Ecology Standards and each teaches a lesson in agriculture.
Second grade students in Mrs. Winters’ class had a lesson called BEE-utiful. The students learned how and why bees pollinate. Each student made a bookmark outlining the lesson and took a turn being a bee and picking up pollen from a flower. Other grades had lessons entitled Water Analysis, Glue from Milk, Colorful Bean, Mighty Smooth Bean and Farm Charm. For more information on the Mobile Ag Lab, visit aglab.pfb.com.
