The American Egg Board (AEB) has partnered with educational organizations to create effective curriculum materials to help further a student's knowledge of eggs and egg farming. AEB and its partners have created practical and ready-to-use materials for K-12 teachers that meet Common Core Standards. Lessons can be integrated into math, science, language arts and social studies.

Lesson plans also provide activities that explain the benefit of a healthy diet and exercise, as well as topics ranging from scientific exploration to creating a healthy plate and learning to read nutritional labels.
