Resources for Educators
We know that you want to be a fantastic teacher. To do that, you need quality resources that spark your student's imagination. The problem is these resources are hard to find and expensive. This makes you feel frustrated and unsure of how you are going to get it all done.
At Missouri 4-H, we understand your frustration which is why we have compiled research-based educational resources and matched them to the Missouri State Learning Standards for you. This means you can stop spending hours at night researching ideas and instead spend time with your family.
Projects and Resources
4-H has many different project topics that are appropriate for youth ages 8 to 18. We also have resources for our Clover Kids — youth ages 5 to 7.
You will want to download a free copy of our Missouri Learning Standards for 4-H Curriculum. This is a work in progress and lists our curriculums, the activities in each, and the Missouri Learning Standards tied to each.
Find more resources by signing up for 4-H on Canvas. Canvas is an online learning system that allows us to create modules for multiple project areas in one place. Project areas will have videos, lesson plans and opportunities for discussion boards.
