Our goal is to provide students with tools to understand Wyoming’s vast resources and become informed citizens, capable and ready to serve as stewards for Wyoming’s future. Our units, aligned to current state standards, are designed to support this mission as relevant and real-world applications of Science, Math, Social Studies, and Language Arts.
As Wyoming citizens, we are inherently stewards, entrusted with the responsible development, care, and use of our state’s resources to benefit current and future generations. The Wyoming Stewardship Project aims to instill this sense of pride, care, and investment into Wyoming students through education. Wyoming Agriculture in the Classroom, with support from the Wyoming Department of Education, has worked with Wyoming teachers and resource leaders to identify key learning concepts and corresponding project-based units. In the diagram to the right, you will see natural resources at the base, understanding the sectors could not operate without them. Agriculture, Minerals & Energy, and Outdoor Recreation & Tourism are three sectors that serve as a foundation for Wyoming. Ultimately, the understanding of our resources and stewardship decisions define our people and culture that we value in our state and are committed to passing down to future generations.
We hope you and your students enjoy and find value in this unit. Please contact us with any thoughts and questions you have, we are always happy to help.
