Sun West SD Ag Program
Proud to Partner
Grades 3 & 4
Do your students love to cook and play games? A local agricultural industry representative visits the classroom to educate the students on topics from how to identify the parts of a plant to challenges farmers face with working in agriculture. There are two presentations available:
Sask Snack Presentation
Encourage your Grade 3 students to consider the role plants play in Saskatchewan. Discussion includes what crops are grown in Saskatchewan, identifying parts of a plant and considering how crops and people are dependent on each other. Students will then prepare a muffin recipe which helps tie in the the crops grown in Saskatchewan and the ingredients used in the recipe.
From the Ground Up! Presentation
Your Grade 4 students participate in an engaging game where students work in teams through a full cycle of farming. They will make decisions about inputs and how to improve the sustainability of food production while problem solving when they face many of the same challenges farmers experience every year. Students also consider how technology has advanced over the years and what role it plays in agriculture.
This program is only available for schools in the Sun West School Division.
