Progressive Agriculture Safety Day


Progressive Agriculture Safety Days® are as fun as they are educational. These one-day events teach elementary aged children lessons that help keep them and those around them safe and healthy.
Our Safety Days operate annually as part of a school day, with support from the teachers, principal, professional presenters and volunteers. 
At a Progressive Agriculture Safety Day, participants are divided into classroom sized groups that rotate between stations where lessons outlined in the Progressive Agriculture Safety Day Topics and Activities Manual are taught. To facilitate learning, educational, age-appropriate and fun hands-on activities and demonstrations are part of each lesson.
