OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An agricultural literacy program that teaches Oklahoma students from kindergarten through the 12th grade that soybeans sprout from seeds and milk is good for you is getting national recognition.

The Ag in the Classroom program is coordinated by the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry. And three program coordinators from Oklahoma City have attended a national conference in Pennsylvania.

Three days of workshops showed teachers how to use agriculture to teach core subjects of language arts, science, social studies and health. Oklahoma’s coordinators highlighted science and technology in their workshop for 65 educators. They also met with dozens of trainers from other states.

Oklahoma’s program has contributed unique lessons to the program’s national website, including the math lesson “By the Pound.”
