Pizz-A-Thon Sustainable Agriculture Learning Standards

National Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources (AFNR) Content Standards Adapted To The PIZZ-A-THON by Elizabeth Sample, Grad Student, Dept. AgEdS, Iowa State University. 

Liz presented the program at the NAAE Convention in New Orleans, 11/19. Ag Teachers in attendance, with FFA Programs are responding.

The following tables consist of a selection of AFNR standards

and indicators that could be met through Pizz-A-Thon activities.

The indicators met will depend on the focus, format and length of

the Pizz-A-Thon program. This document is meant to assist you in

aligning AFNR standards with the content of your Pizz-A-Thon activity.
