Agricultural Literacy Week 2011 - POULTRY


March 21-25 is Agricultural Literacy Week. In New York State the theme for this year's event is the poultry industry. These resources were created in partnership with New York Agriculture in the Classroom and were designed for use by teachers with students in grades K-4 to help increase the awareness, understanding, and appreciation of New York State agriculture.

The materials include 5 features, 5 graphic organizers and 9 learning extensions for Smartboard (notebook or PDF format).
