Agriculture In the Classroom (AITC) is a national organization designed to promote all types of agriculture through hands on, interactive learning experiences. This year’s Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month (CALM) topic was excellent (How did that get in my lunchbox?)! Students really connected with the idea of finding out where their food came from before it got to the store. I was able to participate with students in grades 1 through 3 and their observations and questions were amazing!
Where do seeds come from?
Sunflowers move to follow the sun.
How long does it take seeds to grow?
Look - I have clementines in my lunch bag!
My Dad helps make fertilizer which helps plants to grow.
And, possibly my favorite too… Can we put our hands in the seeds again?
