Pilot Teachers Needed!

Attention High School Teachers!

We need teachers to help us pilot a new lesson plan for Agriculture in the Classroom Canada. Planet X focuses on careers in agriculture and food and links to a wide variety of courses in grades 9-12.

Planet X takes students on a ‘mission’ to select a team of 10 professionals who will produce food on a new planet in the year 2050. Students will gain appreciation and knowledge of the multitude of professions that exist within agriculture and food, while also understanding the importance of every day food production and sustainability to the global population.

Commitment:
-          Apply to pilot and receive a ‘draft’ version of the Planet X resource*
-          Commit to deliver the lesson and provide feedback to AITC-Canada
-          Complete survey about the lesson by December 22, 2017 to receive a $50 gift card
*Note: Limit of 5 teachers per province
