inviting all 3rd - 4th grade teachers and their students (along with home schools) from
L.A. County who would like to join us on an Adventure. You and your students will learn
how agriculture completes the many pieces (water, plants, bees, fiber, food and dairy)
that form the puzzle of our everyday lives. From the food we eat to the clothes we wear
agriculture affects us ALL.
AG DAY LA is filled with valuable hands-on educational experiences to grade school
students in L.A. County schools throughout the greater Los Angeles area. It provides a fun
and exciting way for teachers to address State Standards, as well as to promote
agricultural literacy. AG DAY LA is an eye-opening event for many kids who don't know
where their food comes from or have never seen a live farm animal.
AG DAY LA 2014 will take place at Fairplex Pomona's Big Red Barn
on Wednesday, May 14, 2014, or Thursday, May 15, 2014. Please choose the day(s) and
rotation that will accommodate your schedule!
