Kids say the darndest things


There are many definitions of what it means to learn. The one that really speaks to me is that once you have learned something you are never the same again - you think differently and you act differently. This week we will be focusing on planning to learn. Rather than letting the winter months roll by, we are challenging you to be intentional in your learning. We want to think and act differently by the time seeding rolls around, and we hope that you do to.

Learning is active and involves give-and-take, two way communication and an open mind. Some of the most fun farm conversations we have involve kids:

  • You don’t live on a farm because there aren’t any animals.

  • You are a farmer. But you are a girl.

  • How do plants eat?

Volunteering with Agriculture In The Classroom - Manitoba has allowed us to connect with kids to share our ag story. Please consider joining us this March in grade 2-6 classrooms for Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month (CALM). You have a story to tell, and kids love to learn new things. And, the best part is that we learn from them too!

Register as a volunteer, or register your classroom for a visit.
