Producers, Pigs & Pork!

Comprehensive Teachers Resource Guide

The Illinois Pork Producers and the National Pork Board joined forces to develop Producers, Pigs & Pork, a national standards-based curriculum developed for 3rd through 6th grade students.  Producers, Pigs & Pork is a set of five lessons and teaching tools that addresses our food supply system and highlights pork production. 

Students are introduced to several topics through five easy-to-implement lesson plans on our food supply chain, agriculture and pork. Each lesson includes a variety of activities that enhance skills like listing, sequencing, following directions, summarizing, illustrating and writing. The interactive lessons will answer your students' questions related to the following:

  • Where does my food come from?
  • Where does my pork come from?
  • How is my environment being protected?
  • How is pork good for me?
  • What's all the buzz about pork?
