AITC-Canada launches new education resources with support from CropLife Canada

by

Grade 10 and 11 students will have a chance to learn more about modern farming thanks to new resources developed by Agriculture in the Classroom Canada (AITC-C) in partnership with CropLife Canada.

Educators across Canada will have access to new curriculum-based resources that teach students about what it takes to grow carrots, turnips and potatoes.

The resources draw on CropLife Canada’s Real Farm Lives documentary web series, which was created to showcase the work and lives of farm families across the country. Season 3 of Real Farm Lives, which the resources are focused on, features the McKenna family from Prince Edward Island, who are committed to growing high-quality food for their family and families across the country while leaving the land in better condition for the next generation.

AITC-C and CropLife Canada both believe in providing accurate, balanced and current information to educators to promote agriculture education in Canadian classrooms. Resources like these help students build knowledge around key ideas such as food preparation, food waste and crop protection.

To access the resource, please visit AITC-C.
