2013 Arizona Agriculture Literacy Days

Nov 25 2013 - 8:00am - Nov 27 2013 - 5:00pm

Arizona Agriculture Literacy Days focuses on educating students about our connection to agriculture and the commodities produced on Arizona's lands. We do this because so many of our youth don't know where our food and clothing comes. Young children often think that it magically appears in the grocery and retail stores. We educate youth through the support of volunteers who read a provided book on agriculture to elementary school students. Please consider giving 30 minutes of your time by reading in a classroom near you.

During our 8th year, we will be using a digital version of the soon-to-be published book, Arizona Agriculture: Bee's Amazing Adventure. This is the very first children's book entirely dedicated to Arizona agriculture. The book is written for 1st - 4th grades, but can be adapted for other grade ranges. Volunteers will receive access to the digital version of the book after registration. A free paperback copy of the book will be made available to teachers after they complete a feedback form.
