Just like people, plants need nutrients in order to grow! California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classrooms’ Plant Nutrient resources serves as a collection of materials explaining the relationship between plants, chemistry, fertilizer, the environment, and food and fiber production. Materials are tailored to age groups ranging from kindergarten to twelfth grade. Explore the variety of materials to help students discover the fundamental plant nutrients and the science of growing crops. All lessons and activities are aligned to the current California Education Standards, including Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards.
California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom is dedicated to increase awareness and understanding of agriculture among California’s educators and students in hope of an appreciation of agriculture by all.
