How it Works
The Classroom Agriculture Program (CAP) is a free, one hour, hands-on presentation about agriculture. Since 1985 volunteers across the province have taught grade 4 students the importance of agriculture in their daily lives. Presentations are based on volunteer availability.
CAP strives to provide balanced and unbiased
curriculum-based education. Presentations are delivered between March and June of each year.
I have taught for a very long time and this was the best presentation that I have seen done by an outside group! They did an incredible job and should be applauded by your organization! I won't hesitate to invite them back. Their passion for the topic was shared and embraced by the students. You couldn't help but share their passion for the industry. The students were eager to talk about it long after they had left.
Our presenter was fabulous, had great activities, and my students were so excited! Definitely a valuable educational experience!
All students should see this program.
Often guests don’t put a lot of thought about a grade 4 audience or the prep into engaging them. This presentation is engaging and the kids have their knowledge about agriculture and expanded beyond the scope of the farm. This was an excellent presentation they were engaging, knowledgeable about topic and grade 4 and to top it all off they were passionate about what they were doing.
