Celebrating Canadian Agriculture Literacy Week in Ontario Classrooms

Celebrating Canadian Agriculture Literacy Week in Ontario Classrooms
Today's guest post is from Jan Robertson, Marketing & Communications Manager, Ontario Agri-Food Education Inc.

Ontario Agri-Food Education Inc. (OAFE) and Agriculture in the Classroom (AITC) organizations across Canada will be celebrating the fifth annual Canadian Agriculture Literacy Week (CALW) the first week of March, from February 28th to March 6th, 2016. Agriculture comes alive as students participate in activities to learn about, connect to and understand this important industry.
OAFE is offering resources and programs for both elementary and secondary classrooms which provide opportunities for all grades to celebrate this special week. The Canadian Agriculture Literacy Week Lesson Kit is a collection of curriculum-linked lesson plans that elementary teachers can use to help students understand where their food comes from, how food is labeled, what it means to eat local and more!

Teachers of Grade 7-12 students can invite an OAFE Teacher Ambassador™ into their classroom to deliver an interactive and engaging lesson focused on an agriculture and food topic. Each classroom lesson also includes a career component to encourage students to explore the many opportunities the agriculture sector has to offer.

The highlight of the week will be a live stream event suitable for high school curriculum on the topic of Agriculture and Climate Change scheduled for 3 March 2016. All resources and programs are available FREE!

More information and registration can be found at Ontario Agri-Food Education.  The Canadian Agriculture Literacy Week initiative is made possible through generous core funding from Farm Credit Canada.
