Canada's Agriculture Day Celebration Challenge
Want to get your hands on FREE plantable bookmarks for each of your students?? Participate in the Canada's Agriculture Day Celebration Challenge and we will hook you up!
Did you know that February 23, 2021 is Canada's Agriculture Day? We want you and your students to join us in raising a fork to the food we love and the people who produce it! Let's engage your students in creative ways to celebrate Saskatchewan food workers - from farmers and ranchers, to truck drivers, to equipment dealerships, to grocery clerks, to restaurant workers - there are so many people involved in Saskatchewan's intricate food chain. These hardworking people (our food heroes) are dedicated to bringing food from farm to table and ensuring that no one goes hungry in our province.
We challenge you!
How can you celebrate these food heroes and learn more about agriculture with your students? Here are suggestions of how you can participate:
- Write a thank-you letter to a food hero involved in the food chain. You could mail them or hand deliver them for a special touch!
- Draw a picture of the different Canadian foods or agriculture products that you are thankful for! Hang these up in your community so others can enjoy them!
- Post a "Forks Up for Canadian Agriculture" selfie or classroom photo of your students using #CdnAgDay. Find "Forks Up" graphics here.
- Learn about agriculture and where food comes from by downloading or ordering one of our resources. Why not:
Share what you are doing to celebrate Canada's Agriculture Day by using #CdnAgDay and tagging @aitcsk and @SKAgriculture and @GrainMillers.
And be sure to let us know how you participated in order to claim your plantable bookmarks below!
