On April 28, a virtual learning opportunity offered by the Indiana State Fairgrounds and the LEAP Foundation — "There's a Pig in my Classroom" — will be introduced to Pennsylvania elementary schools. Through funding offered by the Pennsylvania Pork Producers Council, students in grades 3 through 6 are welcomed inside a pig farm via a Zoom interactive learning session.
The program is free for teachers to enroll, but there are limited spots available for PA Day. Pre-registration is required, and can be done online. Teachers will receive lesson plans to compliment the virtual field trip, where students will get a first-hand look into modern day pig production.
Interested teachers can expect a 45-minute virtual session and accompanying lesson plans to be provided. For more information about the program and the academic standards covered through the lesson, visit the Indiana State Fairs website.
For more information or questions, contact Courtney Gray, executive director of the PA Pork Producers Council via email or 570-884-4369.
