Lambton-Kent Agriculture in the Classroom offers a FREE program to Grade 3 students called Harvest Days. Harvest Days educates students about agriculture by talking about soils, seeds and farm animals. Students explore agriculture through a ninety-minute program, visiting four hands-on stations at the University of Guelph, Ridgetown Campus. The stations include “Life of a Dairy Cow”(Dairy Educator/Campus Staff), “How Plants Grow” (Nutrients for Life), “Exploring Grains and Household Products” (GFO) and “Campus Wagon Ride” (Campus Staff). The presenters at each station have a unique and qualified background in the topic they are presenting, keeping the students interested and engaged.
This fast paced, information packed program is an awesome agricultural experience for all who attend! Please refer to the 2022 Harvest Days Flyer below for further details.
