Looking to keep your kids busy over the Christmas break? This month’s EIEIO features kid-friendly agriculture and animal-related links that can help!
Animal Smart is brought to you by the American Society of Animal Science (ASAS) that was featured in last month’s EIEIO post. This program was put together by people passionate about agriculture, hoping to educate and enlighten future generations.
The ASAS also developed an animal education magazine and program that focuses on children; the Junior Animal Scientist. The program is great for children ages 5-12 who are interested in learning about a variety of animals. From zoo animals to domesticated livestock, the Junior Animal Scientist highlights them all.
Each month we’ll highlight what we call an EIEIO, short for Emmert Introduces Educational Information Opportunities. EIEIOs consist of a series of links with a variety of focuses. Some links may be resourceful for children, while others will highlight organizations and societies that apply to industry interests. We’ll share everything from other blogs people might be interested in reading to interesting fact sheets found online. We are open to suggestions and sharing of some of your favorite links, too.
