We're here to help.
Dear advisors and teachers,

We realize various changes and school closings are making typical instruction difficult. We want to do as much as possible to be helpful to you during this challenging time. To that end, We have curated the following list of free resources specifically for agricultural education classrooms. Many of these items can be used either online or in print.

  1. Official FFA Student Handbook
    You can now access an online version of the Official FFA Student Handbook free through the end of June. The handbook in flipbook format is available alongside digital editions of our FFA New Horizons magazines. The handbook is also available as a PDF download. We hope our turnkey student handbook lesson plans, along with free access to the handbook will be helpful in your remote teaching efforts.  

  2. Updated Educator Resources on
    Numerous resources exist on the Educator Resources page of for online or extended learning. We’ve established a table of contents document with a description of some of the most popular and new resources found in Educator Resources – including an easy reference to which resources can be used online or offline.

  3. Minecraft Education
    Microsoft is offering free resources through the end of June within Minecraft Education with lessons that are specific to agriculture and sorted by the Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources Pathways. Check out the Report Learning Kit to better understand how you can use this and Minecraft Education lessons and activities for learning.

  4. AgExplorer Virtual Field Trips
    In the past few years, we’ve made virtual field trips with AgExplorer to major agriculture companies all around the United States. Student handouts are available to accompany these learning opportunities – and they’re specifically designed so you can add them to learning management systems or other e-learning platforms.

We will continue to provide resources that you can use to help navigate during this challenging time. Please reach out to us if you have any questions:

All the best,
