Grade 10 Challenge

Along with Agriculture in the Classroom, Manitoba Pork has created a competition for Grade 10 students to get them thinking about agriculture in general and pork production in particular. We have created a set of lesson plans for Grade 10 geography teachers, designed to make it easy to incorporate into their classes.

These lessons will stimulate Grade 10 students to think about where our food comes from, how its production impacts the environment, and how it affects our daily lives in this agriculture-rich province.

Teachers: Start your students on the path to thinking critically about food production, then enter the Grade 10 Challenge and help them win money for themselves and their school.

Here’s what teachers are saying about the Grade 10 Challenge:

“The Grade 10 Challenge easily fits with the curricular outcomes…”
– Whitney Kreller-Lamont, Ecole Secondaire Neelin High School

“…the materials provided a realistic look at where our food comes  from. They (students) enjoyed the activities and learned from them.”
– Trent Tuttosi, Hapnot Collegiate
