AG in the Classroom Summer Tours

 

The goal of the MAITC Summer Teacher Tours is to provide first-hand experience with agriculture and access to FREE ag-themed, standards-based resources.  We would love to have you, and a few of your non-ag-teaching educator friends, join us for one or more tours this summer! Please consider attending yourself and share this information with the K-12 educators in your school district.  Additional details and registration information can be found at https://minnesota.agclassroom.org/programs/tour.cfm
