Ag In The Classroom Summer Continuing Educational Opportunities for Teachers this Summer

SHARE NOW

The Bureau County Farm Bureau has applied for continuing education credits from the Regional Office of Education to provide two educational opportunities for teacher to attend Ag in the Classroom this summer.

June 5th and 6th, Summer Ag Institute (2-day course). This two-day class will be held in Dixon and Moline. It will focus on John Deere and his move west and how his invention of the plow changed the agricultural industry. Tours will be held each day. Teachers will also hear from Illinois Ag in the Classroom staff about lessons they can take into the classroom next fall.

June 7th and 8th, Ag in a Day (1- or 2-day workshop). The first day we will host tours in Peoria which will include the zoo, botanical gardens and more. The second day we will meet in Galesburg for a classroom day where teachers will hear about resources and lessons they can take back to the classroom next school year.

If you have any questions or would like to register for either training, contact the Farm Bureau office at 815-875-6468 for more details.
