If you didn’t know, I’m a huge baseball fan (Go Twins!). This year I’m particularly excited because I have not one but TWO fantasy baseball leagues. Woo hoo!

The first season of BlogBall started way back in 2008. All educators, all ‘edubloggers’ (thus the league name). We added a second league in 2009, and then a third league in 2010. That turned out to be too many, so we consolidated back to one league and have been going strong ever since. Most of the managers in BlogBall22 have been around since those early days. I’m grateful for their loyalty and dedication. They’re an awesome bunch of humans and baseball fans!

Empowering Students to Understand the Power of Cooperatives

Explore the supply chain and help students understand the cooperative business model with digital resources from Cooperative Minds!

Bringing food from the farm to your table takes a lot of hard work. Right now, about 96% of the farms in the United States are family-owned and produce $136.1 billion worth of crops, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. But bringing crops to the consumer can be challenging. That’s why farmers join together in agricultural cooperatives, or co-ops.

While farming continues to evolve with technological innovation, co-ops have been around for more than 250 years—since the beginning of the industrial revolution. One of the first known examples of a co-op is from the 1860’s when a group of farmers fought for restrictions on grain-storage and railroad fees. Cooperatives are like corporations in many ways but, instead of being owned primarily by shareholders, they are owned by their members who use the cooperative’s products, supplies or services – joining together likeminded individuals to achieve a common goal.

To help students better understand this critical aspect of the supply chain, CHS Foundation and Discovery Education partnered to create Cooperative Minds, an educational initiative immersing high school students nationwide in the dynamic ingenuity and collaborative spirit of cooperatives. Students can sow the seeds of success with no-cost and standards-aligned resources that help them explore essential careers and endless possibilities in agricultural cooperatives.

No matter where learning takes place, educators can integrate the resources, like the new Power of Cooperatives Virtual Field Trip, into lessons to engage students and expand their thinking. This virtual experience digs into the exciting ways agricultural cooperatives are connecting communities and inspiring everyday innovation. Students will trace the lifecycle of a crop from the ground up to see how collaboration and creativity combine to nourish communities, solve problems, and improve lives. Along the way, students will meet a variety of real-world co-op professionals who reveal the STEM innovations that today’s farms are using to stay productive.

The resource is turnkey and comes with an educator resource guide detailing student activities for before, during, and after the virtual field trip. Show students the power of collaboration and help them grow into a successful future today by checking out the virtual field trip, and more, at cooperative-minds.com and on the Discovery Education K-12 learning platform.

Taking place annually in April, Financial Literacy Month was founded by the National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE) and is produced by the Jump$tart Coalition. To support financial literacy wherever learning takes place, Discovery Education presents a curated collection of resources focused on financial literacy created in collaboration with leading social impact partners: 

Classroom Activity
Help students connect economics concepts to current events and everyday life with timely activities, videos, interactive modules and more. From price discovery to supply chain dynamics, resources from Econ Essentials, an educational initiative with Futures Fundamentals, examine real-world applications of complex market topics. Students will explore how changes in supply and demand curves impact prices, while a new hot topic activity looks at the ways businesses react to and mitigate the risks of such price fluctuations caused by supply chain disruptions. 

Professional Learning
In this on-demand series, educators hear firsthand the benefits financial education has both on students and their teachers. Presented by Discover and Discovery Education in the Pathways to Financial Success initiative, this series sparks ideas, connects educators, and helps prompt conversations with administrators about the need for financial education. 

Community Contest
Encourage community collaboration with the 6th annual Cha-Ching Money Smart Kids Contest created with Jackson Charitable Foundation. The contest enables communities to vote for their elementary school to win $10,000 that can be used for critical educator resources that teach kids how to earn, save, spend, and donate. The contest is open through June 17, 2022, and communities can find more resources for elementary students at cha-chingusa.org.  

Gamify Learning
In partnership with the business-building video game Venture Valley, Discover Venture Valley empowers students to build financial and business basics. Students in grades 6-12 can benefit from the power of play as they engage with the game and a suite of standards-aligned resources to learn such principles as investments/dividends, fixed and variable expenses, loans, net vs gross income, and more curriculum topics. 

“I love supporting teachers when they incorporate financial literacy activities into lessons because I know that it’s not only helping students learn about critical topics, but it’s also helping to strengthen their ability to make smart financial decisions in the future,” said Michelle Wendt, Technology Integration Specialist at Stockton University School of Education. “With these resources and more from Discovery Education and their partners, equitable access to these critical skills can be extended to all children, wherever they are learning.” 

Educators and students can find these and more resources for recognizing Financial Literacy Month in the Discovery Education K-12 learning platform.
