Using Maize in K-12 Classrooms

Below are four submissions for ways that maize has be used in the K-12 classroom. Thanks to everyone who submitted their ideas and activities!
Your ideas and activities are needed for future editions. Our plan is to have this section be a regular part of the maize newsletter. If you have visited classrooms, worked with teachers, or in any other way used maize in the K-12 classroom, your colleagues would love to hear about it. Also, if you make use of ideas submitted in the newsletter, we would like to hear about it.
Vicki Chandler will act as the occordinator to assemble this section. Your ideas and reports can be submitted via email, FAX, diskette, or old-fashioned mail. It would be best to send the information by February 1st each year. However, material can be submitted anytime during the year.
