Virtual Classroom Resources

The start of the 2020-2021 school year is going to be very different for a lot of students, parents and teachers. We have compiled some of our resources, activities, videos and blog posts into a Virtual Classroom Resource page to help you tell the story of Ontario grain farming, and help your students understand where their food comes from.

If you have any questions or have a suggestion on something you would like to see, please contact us at web@gfo.ca
