The mAGic (Multidisciplinary AGricultural Integrated Curriculum) Kits were created under the leadership of the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) and Facilitating Coordination in Agricultural Education Project (FCAE). Funds were made available from the Illinois State Board of Education through a subcontract with the Facilitating Coordination in Agricultural Education Project (FCAE).
The curriculum in the mAGic kits are multidisciplinary, all inclusive, and designed to bring agriculture to life in your classroom. The mAGic kits address Illinois Learning Standards in math, science, English language arts and social studies.
These kits were revised from the original Agri-Science Kits that were developed by the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, teamed with the Illinois State Board of Education and the Facilitating Coordination Agricultural Education staff.
