Farm Bureau Field Trip for Teachers—July 8-11, 2013
We are pleased to help the Lake County Farm Bureau promote one of their educational initiatives. As their website describes:
“The Lake County Farm Bureau holds an educator field trip each summer with the hopes that teachers will gain first-hand knowledge about agricultural production which they can then take back to their classrooms to share with their students. In addition to providing the first-hand experience, teachers who attend the educator field trip also receive numerous learning materials and lesson plans, which meet Illinois Learning Standards. The trip features four days of touring local agribusinesses in Lake, Cook, and McHenry Counties, and is finished off with a day at the Farm Bureau office that features free learning materials and ideas on how teachers can incorporate agriculture into their lessons.
The $25 registration fee includes the costs of traveling on a motor coach as a group on the three touring days of the trip, four lunches, one dinner, snacks, water, learning materials, and touring fees at some locations.”
