Five ‘My American Farm’ tablet apps available
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture has released a tablet app modeled after the popular agricultural game site, “My American Farm.” The app is now available for free download on iTunes and Google Play.
The app features five games from My American Farm -- In My Barn, My Little Ag Me, Equipment Engineer, Farmer’s Market Challenge, and Ag Across America.
App users are rewarded with a virtual sticker after successfully completing each game. Stickers can be dragged and dropped onto a virtual passport, allowing users to track their progress.
New resources have also been developed to provide guidance for using the app in a traditional or non-traditional setting. A formal lesson plan for classroom instruction, as well as tips and tricks for suggested integration in a variety of settings, will be available at www.myamericanfarm.org/games. For additional information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The My American Farm educational resource is a special project of the Foundation. The site and resources are made possible through the generous support of title sponsor DuPont Pioneer. To take advantage of the free My American Farm resources, games, and activities, visit www.myamericanfarm.org.
