Manitoba Ag Days Adventure
Cancelled for 2021
Manitoba Ag Days Adventure focuses on the theme, think global, act local. First, in the morning, students are given a perspective on global issues through their participation in the World Game where they model the world's population and experience the idea of ratio and proportion. They also examine global land population, distribution and density, as well as the similarities and differences in agriculture production and agriculture imports and exports.
Then in the afternoon, as part of a team, students discover the importance of our local agriculture industry by going on an Ag Hunt to learn awesome information about agriculture and agriculture careers from participating booths at Manitoba Ag Days in the Keystone Centre.
