Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Provides Free Educational Resources

Tallahassee, Fla. — The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) is providing free educational resources for parents whose children remain home and are distance learning during COVID-19 school closures.

“With Florida schools closed during COVID-19, it’s so important that our children continue learning, especially about the world around us including our animals, farms, and natural resources,”said Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried. “We’re sharing these free coloring books, recipes, and activities so that parents and caregivers can help kids connect with where their food comes from and the natural treasures of Florida.”

A variety of materials such as workbook activities, coloring storybooks, and recipes for healthy snacks are available for students and teachers to use at home and in remote classrooms throughout Florida. These educational materials cover a wide range of topics, from insect identification to agriculture history, are delineated by grade levels, and are available for download on our Florida Resources for Parents, Teachers, and Students page.

In partnership with the American Farm Bureau Foundation, Florida 4-H, and Florida Agriculture in the Classroom Inc., these resources are made available to benefit young Floridians during this period of distance learning. This collection of resources are intended to continue to inspire interest in Florida’s natural resource systems until Florida’s classrooms resume their regular schedule, and beyond.
