You've heard the stories. Perhaps you've even experienced one first-hand. Each year in the United States, about 300 kids are killed in agricultural accidents, and at least 5,000 more are seriously injured. Education is a valuable tool in reducing these frightening numbers.

This Teacher's Guide is targeted toward elementary students (Grades 4-6), and contains background information to help you implement the accompanying student activities. If you do not have an agricultural background, some of this information will be new to you. Even if you live or have grown up on a farm or ranch, you may learn something new from these pages. The accompanying activity sheets incorporate content and skills derived from a variety of subject areas.
