To gather the necessary data, a combination of statistics, interviews, and focus group was used to determine the results. Using a mixed methodology allowed for a multifaceted study that investigated current implementation, teachers’ perspectives, and lesson planning for agricultural education. Conclusions informed New Hampshire Agriculture in the Classroom of ways to successfully infuse agriculture education into elementary curriculums throughout the state.
