Agriculture in the Classroom

Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month (March 2020)

CALM Visits Suspended

PLEASE NOTE: As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, we all have a role to play in slowing its spread and minimizing its impact on our health care system and our communities. As part of this effort, we are suspending our Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month (CALM) classroom visits until further notice.

As response to COVID-19 is a fluid, rapidly unfolding situation, AITC-M will continue to monitor the recommendations of our health care agencies. When the threat passes, AITC-M will contact all volunteers and teachers and encourage them to reschedule this school year!

The health and safety of our participating educators and their students, volunteers and staff is our number one priority. Thank you for your support and understanding.

Take Care!


Celebrate Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month (CALM) with a 60-minute classroom visit where your students will meet a local farmer or agricultural industry representative, do a hands-on agriculture activity, have a book read to them and learn where food comes from. The program is geared towards Grades 2-6 and has direct links to ELA, health, social studies and science. 

Program details:
Who: Grades 2-6
When: March 2020
Where: Your Classroom
Time: 30 mins - 1 hr
