HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Weekly update on America’s Heartland PBS TV series.  2009-2010 Season 5

America’s Heartland, produced by KVIE in California is a weekly video
magazine about agriculture.  It is a great classroom resource – either
as an entire episode, or as just a 5 minute segment.  It is a great way
to bridge gaps between the Georgia Performance Standards actual hands-on
activities.  For example, few of us grow corn for ethanol or soy for
biodiesel…so using short and entertaining video clips that shows how
these products are made and used – is probably better than either
avoiding these topics or covering them simply by reading or class
lecture.

America’s Heartland videos offer virtual classroom fieldtrips looking
into areas of agriculture that some of us may not explore – such as
aquaculture, forestry, veterinary medicine, fruit and nut production, as
well as a variety of row crops.  The series is wholesome, patriotic,
up-to-date, devoted to American agriculture, and quite informative and
entertaining.  I can’t say enough about how this series has helped both
me and my urban/suburban students learn about American agriculture.

If you visit the websites listed below, you can videostream the episodes
in your classroom – no $$$/fees involved.  Likewise, you can contact
America’s Heartland and order an individual episode or an entire season.
 Ask for a teacher discount.
