Cayuga-Onondaga BOCES participates in Agricultural Literacy Week

Amber Renslow, Auburn ECSD, reads "The Grapes Grow Sweet" to Owasco Elementary students as part of New York Agriculture in the Classroom's Agricultural Literacy Week. Cayuga-Onondaga BOCES collaborated with Cornell Cooperative Extension for this initiative. Amber presented with fellow FFA/Plant, Animal, and Life Sciences students to read and do a grape graphing activity with the elementary students. 

How does Agricultural Literacy Week (ALW) work?
In celebration of New York agriculture, volunteers throughout the state read a book with an agricultural theme to second graders. Students and teachers also benefit from hands-on lessons and receive follow up activities. The 2017 Agricultural Literacy Week runs March 20-24.
