New this year is our Videos, Lessons, & Other Resources page. These are made available as an educational supplement for volunteers and teachers who want to invest more time beyond the basic reading of Bee's Amazing Adventure. Maybe the eerily, beautiful growth of larvae into bees in the time-lapse video will catch your eye. Perhaps a lesson or activity from one of the 33 related lessons will quench students’ thirst for knowledge. Be sure to check out the quick resources that include parts of a seed, a plant, and a bee, along with other resources.
We still encourage volunteers to read to students during the three days before Thanksgiving (November 19-21). However, you can schedule your visits anywhere between October 22 and December 21.
Participating couldn’t be simpler!
- Let us know you're interested in volunteering by clicking here.
- Talk with a teacher (or teachers) about reading and submit their email addresses.
- Receive a copy (or copies) of Arizona Agriculture: Bee's Amazing Adventure.
- Read to students.
- Complete a brief online report (estimation of time with students & people present).
After you register, we’ll follow-up with you until you submit the teachers’ email addresses. Once we hear back from the teachers you talk to, we’ll mail you the books.
Next, schedule your visit – it doesn’t have to be long. So, please give 30 minutes of your time by reading in a classroom near you. Register at http://cals.arizona.edu/agliteracy/AZ-Ag-Lit-Days.
If you’re a teacher who wants to volunteer to receive a free book, you will need to have at least one other class and its teacher join you and your students during the reading. Each of the additional teachers will also receive their own copy of Bee's Amazing Adventure.
