NCGA highlights corn-based learning


The National Corn Growers Association has provided more learning resources for teachers and parents amid schools closing due to coronavirus.

They are offering digital and hard copy resources and some states, including Kansas, have an expansive databased of their own.

The Kansas Corn Commission has worked with teachers to create resources for hands-on lessons using common household items and lessons are constantly updated.

Kansas also offers STEM materials for older students that allow them to do lab work from home based on the curriculum.

“Using a corn-based curriculum that meets the teaching standards for most states is a great way to mix up your teaching approach and keep things fun. So, whether it is learning math conversion and calculations, an essay project to sharpen those writing skills, or learning about biotechnology, you can find it on the Kansas Corn site,” the NCGA said in a release.
