” title=”Ag Literacy In the Classroom.”>Ag Literacy In the Classroom.

 

As requested here is the slideshow I presented to a Saskatoon classroom in the Wildwood School during Ag Literacy Week (March 3rd to 7th) this year (with a few changes, the actual slideshow didn’t save properly).  Keep in mind that there was a lengthy presentation along with it so some of the captions may not make sense.  I spoke to the students about the weather, why we use chemicals, how we grow our crops, how we store and sell our grain, teaching younger generations of farmers, how farmers care for their animals, why some animals are kept in barns, and the importance of biotechnology now and in the future. After the slideshow presentation we talked about organic and conventional farming and did a taste test. We read a book about farming on the prairies, enjoyed oatmeal cookies and looked at samples of lentils, wheat, oats and barley grown on our farm. It was a lot of fun and I hope more schools and more volunteers sign up next year (hint, hint W.E.S.). Thanks to everyone who helped me out with pictures!
