DESCRIPTION: The Regional Summer Ag Institute “Ag in a Day” consists of two, 1-day educational workshops for teachers in Bureau, Henderson, Henry, Knox, Mercer, Stark and Warren Counties in Illinois. This annual program rotates among counties to educate teachers about local agricultural businesses and opportunities to incorporate agriculture into school lesson plans. This year Day 1 will include tours in the Peoria area: a behind the scenes tour of the Peoria zoo, a tour of the Botanical Gardens in Peoria, and a tour of Caterpillar’s Visitor Center. Day 2 will include a presentation by Illinois Ag in the Classroom, hands-on activities and presentations by county ag education coordinators, a training and development color/personality assessment, and information about grant resources available to teachers through Illinois ag in the Classroom/Illinois Farm Bureau. Our goal is to highlight different areas of agriculture surrounding us and show agriculture’s importance to our local communities and state. We want educators to become more informed on different areas of agriculture and show them ways they could implement it in their curriculum. We also want to show them potential locations they can take their students for field trips.
