Keeping with the Engage, Educate and Empower ethos of AgriKids, the ‘AgriKids Farm Safe
Week’, (AFSW)’ allows primary school children to participate in a week long series of farm safety themed lessons, both at home and in class.
With daily themes, the content is suitable for all classes and are accompanied with activities to enhance the learning outcome.
At the end of the week each participant (child, class or school), will be asked to make their ‘AgriKids Farm Safe Promise’ – this is to create the sense of empowerment from the week long series of activities and to create a duty of care to be farm safe and to stay farm safe.
A key deliverable is engaging and collaborating with outside organisations and speakers to assist with the delivery of the themes over the week.
*Note: certificates are giving on submission of evidence of work.
The AgriKids Farm Safe Week planner will help teachers plan their FSW activities. Check out our daily activity ideas in the bottom section.
At the end of the week, print out & sign the AgriKids Farm Safe Promise, so everyone remembers to be farm safe & stay farm safe.
If you choose to, you can submit your work to receive a Certificate of Participation. Share pictures and/or class activities as evidence of work via link below.
To assist educators in their co-ordination of their AgriKids Farm Safe Week we have come up with some ideas and resources to help. Check out the Resources Bank for more. We welcome new, innovative and creative methods in farm safety education and educators are invited to share these at firstname.lastname@example.org. All ideas used will be credited to the originator. Below you can decide activities for the day, book events, download your Farm Safe Promise charter (to be signed at the end of the week) and also a calendar to plan your activities.
