Illinois Agriculture in the Classroom (IAITC) is helping teachers integrate agriculture into their holiday lesson plans with the introduction of Sprout the Elf on the Shelf.

“Each year teachers and families make new memories through the ever-popular Elf on the Shelf tradition during the holiday season,” said Kevin Daugherty, IAITC education director. “We wanted to put our own twist on this holiday favorite while providing access to free resources to teach kids the value of agriculture.”

The complete Elf on the Shelf with IAITC resource booklet contains ideas for 20 agriculture-themed Elf on the Shelf scenes. Teacher can also access a full list of materials to plan for Sprout the Elf’s activities.
