An essential part of this experience's success is to provide your students with thorough background knowledge before coming to the farm (or viewing the Electronic Field Trip). This teacher manual is filled with background information for teachers and includes instructional ideas to use before and after a field trip to Mount Vernon. Information includes vocabulary to listen for, pre-visit instructional materials, post-visit instructional materials, Virginia’s SOL objectives, extensive teacher background information, “rate your knowledge” form, KWL chart, T-Chart, Data Retrieval Chart, Four Square Chart, Job Web Chart, Learning Quilt, and a Venn Diagram.
 
The Seed to Table Teacher Manual was provided by the education staff at Mount Vernon Estate, Museum & Gardens.
