This year’s Pennsylvania Farm Show hosted 10,000 competitive exhibits, and 300 commercial exhibits, and nearly 6,000 animals. The event showcased the quality and breadth of Pennsylvania’s agriculture industry and the people who make it thrive. Agriculture employs nearly half a million people and contributes $185 billion to Pennsylvania’s economy every year.
Whether or not you and/or your students were among the 500,000 visitors, consider the opportunity to include agricultural career activities in your classroom. The resources include activities for students in grades PK-8.
