The 14th annual Florida Agriculture Literacy Day is coming up this Tuesday, May 2nd where readers across the state will be using a new non-fiction children’s book that highlights Florida’s aquaculture and seafood industries. The book is geared to students in kindergarten through fifth grade, and while those reading are encouraged to do this on Agriculture Literacy Day, it’s something that can be done any time until the end of the school year.
According to a release from Florida Agriculture in the Classroom (FAITC), the book and materials are provided to readers for free thanks to funding FAITC receives from sales of the agriculture specialty license plate, ‘Ag Tag,’ along with a generous donation from the Florida Farm Bureau’s Women’s Committee.
Florida Agriculture in the Classroom is a non-profit organization that educates Florida teachers and students about where their food, fiber and fuel comes from using lessons, materials, grants and other programs like Florida Agriculture Literacy Day.
