On behalf of the Agriculture in the classroom coag-in-the-classroom-horsemmittee and the Glencoe Agricultural Society, we would like to extend this invitation to grade 3 and 4 classes to participate in the annual Agriculture in the Classroom Program, in conjunction with the Glencoe Fall Fair. 

The educational day will take place on Friday September 21, 2018 from 9:45 a.m. – 1:00 p.m, at the Glencoe Arena.

There is no cost for this educational opportunity as valuable partners (CanGrow Crop Solutions & Glencoe Grand & Seed) have been established and understand the importance of the local agricultural industry and the merit to educate your students in these areas.

By participating in the Glencoe Fair’s Agriculture in the Classroom Program, your students will have the active opportunities to:

- Develop concerns and care for the environment and respect for living things.

- Learn new vocabulary about animals, farming, farm implements and food.

- Develop a positive attitude about agriculture and its importance to the food they eat.

- Meet people from the local rural community.

- Observe and compare a variety of plants and animals common to the local environment.

- Become more aware of the various farming methods and practices as they relate to local agriculture industry.

- Gain hands on experience with live animal handling and local agricultural commodity displays.ag-in-the-classroom
