Agriculture literacy week observed March 1 to 7
One of Saskatchewan’s most important industries is being saluted during Agriculture Literacy Week on March 1 to 7.
During Agriculture Literacy Week, producers and other members of the agriculture industry gather in classrooms across the province to read agriculture stories and discuss their experiences in the industry. Their visits are supplemented by materials pro- vided by Agriculture in the Classroom (AITC), such as books and videos.
“Agriculture plays a vital role in our lives, and it’s important that our youth understand that,” AITC Exec- utive Director Sara Shymko said. “Students often learn best when they are able to connect with their subject matter. By introducing them to people directly involved in the agriculture industry, we’re
Aable to help them understand the role agriculture plays in their lives and in the world.”
More than 130 classrooms and almost 3,000 students will be taking part in Agriculture Literacy Week this year.
