This teacher's guide is designed to help teachers make the families described in the "People on the Farm" series of booklets come alive for their students. The guide provides a variety of suggestions for class discussions and student activities. The teacher's guide is organized into three sections. Section 1 covers some of the major ideas, or generalizations, that flow through all of the booklets. Each of the generalizations is followed by a suggested classroom activity. Goals and teacher instructions for implementing the activity are provided. Section 2 summarizes each of the booklets and contains several student activities and discussion questions for each booklet. Section 3 contains a list of resources (local, state, and national) for obtaining further information about agriculture. (KC)
