In celebration of New York agriculture, volunteers throughout the state will read a book with an agricultural theme to second graders. Students and teachers will also benefit from hands-on lessons and receive follow up activities. The book will be donated to the school or classroom library with a bookplate recognizing the donor and NY Agricultural Literacy Week.
New York State has one of the longest running and largest Agricultural Literacy Week programs in the country. Last year, a record number of 65,000 students across 61 counties participated in Agricultural Literacy Week.
2020 Agricultural Literacy Week begins Monday, March 16th and runs through Friday, March 20th.
Start to Finish the program takes about 30 minutes per classroom.
All activity materials are prepared by NYAITC and schools get to keep a copy of the book for their school or classroom library.
Thank you to all of our volunteers and donors who help make the Ag Literacy Week a success!
To be announced soon!
Now in its 15th Year, Agricultural Literacy Week has helped to bring agriculturally themed books and resources into thousands of classrooms and libraries throughout New York State.
