WARRENSBURG- During the sixth annual National Agriculture Week (March 21-25), students throughout New York will be learning about the variety of products that the poultry industry provides. Coordinated by New York Agriculture in the Classroom, the week will be celebrated across the state in second grade classrooms with a visit from a community member involved in agriculture. This year's book is the Chicks & Chickens written by Gail Gibbons, which will be read to the class and then donated to the school library. Teachers will also receive a resource packet including additional lessons and information on the poultry industry.
Cornell University Cooperative Extension and 4-H is seeking volunteer readers, preferably parents or students, to read the book to elementary students. They are also seeking personal or business sponsors to purchase books for every elementary school and library in Warren County.
Call John at 668-4881 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
