From Our Friends at the Arizona Farm Bureau:
Katie Aikins, AZFB Associate Director of Education
The Arizona Farm Bureau Ag in the Classroom Program (AITC) is egg-cited to announce that more teachers will be able to bring chicks to their classroom thanks to a generous donation by Hickman’s Family Farms. AZFB AITC’s Poultry Curriculum Kit inventory has hovered at 5 for the past 6 years. But not any longer. There are now 20 Poultry Curriculum Kits that are available to teachers across the state! Curriculum kits include not only hands-on lessons about poultry production, care and embryology, but they now include lessons on nutrition. In addition to the standards-based lessons, the kit also comes with a classroom incubator and all the required materials and equipment to hatch eggs and care for chicks in the classroom. Look for updates on how our classes are doing with their chicks throughout the year!
Another egg-citing addition to the Poultry Kit this year is the partnership with AZFB AITC and Hickman’s Family Farms. Teachers who reserve one of the many Poultry Curriculum Kits will have the opportunity to have a representative from Hickman’s Family Farms visit their classroom for an egg-ceptional presentation FREE of charge!
As always, AZFB AITC’s Curriculum Kits are available FREE to teachers across the state. Visit us on the web at www.azfb.org for more information on all of the Kits included in AITC’s inventory. Contact Katie Aikins at firstname.lastname@example.org or 480.635.3608 to reserve your kit today!
