From the Board of Directors

Welcome new and returning teachers! We’re so excited to present

to you our Schools’ Agriculture and Nutrition Fair for 2014.

This year’s theme, Grape Expectations, is representative of our continuing

mission to bring agriculture and nutrition together in an educational and fun

setting.

Our Fair will run from Tuesday, May 13 through Saturday, May 17 at Fairplex in

Pomona; we believe this scheduling will aid you in arranging your field trips to the

Fair with four school days to choose from.

The Schools’ Agriculture and Nutrition Fair/Program is sponsored by the 48th

District Agricultural Association which serves as a resource center for teachers in

the greater Los Angeles, and surrounding, school districts by providing materials

to assist teachers in instructing students about where food and fiber comes from

as well as the benefits of healthy eating habits. These materials teach students

how agriculture affects their daily lives and how important it is to the economy

of California. Teachers can check out bread making kits, incubators to hatch chicks

in the classroom, insect supplies, seeds for school gardens, timely agricultural

and nutritional publications and related curriculum books, DVD’s and videos,

hydroponics and Trout in the Classroom equipment. The 48th DAA also schedules

workshops for teachers throughout the year. All materials and workshops are free

to teachers.

Our program assists teachers and their students through the opportunity

to participate in our annual Fair by showcasing their agricultural and nutritional

projects. Of course, the height of the Fair experience is seeing the students’

excitement as they view their accomplishments and awards.

Thank you again for your continued support and participation in the Schools’

Agriculture and Nutrition Fair; we look forward to seeing you again at the Fair!

Ag Day LA

Ag Day LA is a valuable hands-on educational experience for third

plants, bees, fiber, food and dairy) is involved in our everyday lives. From

the food we eat to the clothes we wear, agriculture affects us all.

Ag Day LA provides a fun and exciting way for teachers to address State

Standards, as well as to promote agricultural literacy. The event will take place in

conjunction with the 48th District Agricultural Association’s Schools’ Agriculture

and Nutrition Fair.

Ag Day LA will be held May 14 and 15, 2014 during the Schools’ Agriculture

and Nutrition Fair.

Each individual must have a journal and data reflecting the progress

2046 7–8

of the experiment. The journal must include quantitative and

2047 9–12

qualitative observations. There must be a control and only have one

variable such as different nutrients solutions or different types of

lighting or different amounts of lighting or different types of growing

media or different types of growing systems or dream up your own

variable to test. Once you choose a variable, all other aspects of the

plants’ care must be the same for each plant. You may start from seed

or a plant but you must record the characteristics of all plants at the

beginning of the experiment in order to show valid results. There must

be more than two plants in your experiment.

All entries must have a backboard with the title of the experiment

in question form, hypothesis, materials used, procedure, results and

conclusion. At least a sampling of the plants in the experiment must

be displayed.

*For 1st and 2nd grades observe the growth of the hydroponic plants

and the regular soil plants. Instead of a written journal you may

draw your observations of the plants weekly.
