Maine Agriculture in the Classroom


2024 Read ME Agriculture


The 2024 Read ME Agriculture program will be held March 18 - 22, for Maine grades PK-4 students. Inspired by our current focus on aquaculture, this year's book is "The Wakame Gatherers," written by Holly Thompson and illustrated by Kazumi Wilds. Every classroom that participates will receive a copy of the book and accompanying educator's guide, with aligned classroom activities.

To best serve the hundreds of classrooms that participate in Read ME each year, the 2024 program will be a hybrid model where classrooms can choose from in-person and virtual options. Classrooms may choose their own reader or ask MAITC for help.

*For individual teachers wishing to register multiple classrooms a form will be sent by email after receiving your response.

Deadline: February 9, 2024
