NRCS Offers Online Courses for Youth, Teachers
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service is offering online courses for youth and teachers through its teachers and students webpage.
Through these courses, students can learn about how soil, water, air, plants and animals help sustain a healthy environment.
The webpage’s components include interactive and downloadable classroom activities. Young students will be entertained by NRCS characters like S.K. Worm, while older students can partake of lessons that offer hands-on activities and promote field investigation.
This collection of NRCS resources provides teachers with standardized information created from scientific research in environmental conservation. For information, visit: www.nrcs.usda.gov/wps/portal/nrcs/main/national/people/teachstudent/.
