October is Agriculture Month in Saskatchewan!
Everyone has a food story, whether you’re a farmer, a chef or someone who just loves food! Your story is simply your perceived connection - direct or indirect - to the food you eat or grow.
Saskatchewan agriculture provides the world with plenty of safe, affordable and healthy food. It also offers alternative fuel sources and leads to the development of medicines and vaccines – all while helping to ensure a strong and stable economy.
This October, let's celebrate the Saskatchewan producers and the wide variety of delicious foods and ingredients they grow right here in our province.
How can I get my classroom involved in Ag Month?
*My Food Story resource - A lesson plan guiding elementary students to explore foods grown in Saskatchewan and laminated, washable meal placemats for the students to share their personal food story. Orders placed before the end of October will receive a set of dry-erase markers for the student to use on their placemat. Also available in French.
*Feeding a Growing World: Exploring Saskatchewan’s Role in Global Food Security – Provides the means for middle year students to inquire, explore and investigate the question, “How might Saskatchewan agriculture contribute to global food security for 9 billion people?”
*All About Food resource – Presents factual information for high school students about ‘hot topics’ in agriculture, with a companion website that extends learning by providing a teacher guide, links to videos, and interactive games.
