Farmtastic AgVentures 2014-15, a series of six Google Hangouts bringing agriculture to 4th & 5th grade classrooms, connecting Ohio farmers, food producers and other agriculture-related individuals is organized and ready for your classroom’s participation.
Farmtastic AgVentures includes a AgMag for each student in the classroom that relates to the topic to be presented according to the AgVenture schedule attached.
The AgMags will be provided by the county Farm Bureau free-of-charge and will be delivered to your school at least one week in advance of each AgVenture topic you select to participate in.
In October students visited an apple orchard and learned about making apple cider without leaving the classroom. November was pork month, visiting with a pork producer and bees were buzzing in January with a local beekeeper.
The final three sessions will be water on March 13, soil and trees in April and pizza (dairy and vegetables) in May.
