As a former teacher, my first thought is to have your students bring in data from their own farms/operations. It helps on two fronts. #1 - students are putting what they learn into practice. It's a great jumping off point for students to learn to make management decisions. Also, it's a great communication tool between parents/operators and the kids/students. You would have to provide specific examples of what they need to bring in because every farm is run differently. You could provide a list/sylabus of the general concepts that will be covered (depending on what module you're using...accounting or mapping or both.) This would save you time and students could begin gathering information as the course starts.

What ages are you teaching? Are all of the students from farming operations close by? perhaps propose a mentor program with local farmers and students. Farmers would agree to provide data and get free reports and students then have data to work from.

Just some thoughts,
