Using your Ag in the Classroom Calendar
I hope you are all enjoying your 2019-2020 AITC calendar. With its beautiful photographs, interesting daily facts, vocabulary, and recommended books, the calendar offers engagement for students of all age groups. Here are some ideas to get you started!
Morning Circle Time: Have students gather on the carpet or other area of the room. Using the calendar as an example, discuss the month, day of the week, and the daily agricultural fact. Encouraging student to use this time to relate agriculture to their everyday lives.
Seasonal Units: Often times, monthly topics follow the theme of the current growing season. Before turning the page to a new month, ask students to predict what the next month's topic might be.
Writing Activities: Need a quick writing prompt? Have students write a short paragraph about the monthly topic prior to reading any of the facts. At the end of the month, ask students to write another paragraph expressing new things they learned.
