Global Resources for Schools: Heifer International

Heifer International‘s mission is to work with communities around the world to end hunger and poverty and care for the Earth.  Its website features free elementary and middle school classroom resources, lesson plans and project ideas like:

  • Farm to Plate, which challenges students to discover the origins of their food and investigate the extensive transportation systems that facilitate food delivery to consumers around the world
  • Read to Feed a service learning program
  • Global Education to Improve Tomorrow (GET IT!), which teaches middle school students about their roles as consumers and the effects their choices have in the global marketplace

The site also includes videos, games, experiments, a resource library and a blog.


Global Resources for Schools is our twice-monthly feature highlighting international focused organizations, educational websites and resources to support educators in their efforts to create globally oriented schools.
