Canadian Agriculture Literacy Week

Posted March 3, 2014

Agriculture in the Classroom organizations will participate in the third annual Canadian Agriculture Literacy Week (CALW) in schools across the nation from March 2-9, 2014.

CALW encourages children to learn about and celebrate agriculture in various ways, including reading books about farming, watching videos and meeting with farmers and other agricultural representatives. An important element to the success of CALW is the connection between students and local farmers and/or agriculture industry representatives.

This year, Agriculture in the Classroom-Manitoba will deliver CALW to over 3,000 Grade 3, 4 and 5 students in over 140 classrooms across Manitoba. Visit www.aitc.mb.ca for more information.
