Join the 2,000 Kids Learning About Local Farms and Food at Farm Bureau’s Ag Day
Want your fourth graders to know where their food comes from? Why natural resources like water and soil are important? How the source of all things in their daily life is either agriculture or mining? Here’s a chance for them to ask questions of people in dozens of careers, in the job field that feeds us all — in a fun, interactive way.
And while the event might seem a long time off, now is the time for teachers and parents to sign up.
“As many as 2,000 fourth-grade students and their teachers from Kane County elementary schools attend this agricultural exhibit in celebration of National Agriculture Week,” according to the Kane County Farm Bureau website. “The exhibit includes presenters from many facets of the agriculture industry, an indoor farm zoo and an outdoor farm equipment showcase.”
Now is the time to sgn up for Kane County Farm Bureau’s 31st Annual Ag Days held at Mooseheart Fieldhouse near Batavia on March 15 and March 16, 2016. Students get to talk to farmers about their jobs, play interactive games and see farm animals and modern farm machinery.
“There’s no cost for this two-hour field trip,” noted Suzi Myers, ag literacy coordinator. “We’ll send you a lesson to get them ready for the experience.”
