According to Special Days in March, 2018 , the week beginning March 11 is overly full of learning potential! In fact, this week has so many “daily specials” that it’s proving difficult to narrow our learning topics down. Regardless of what direction we go with this week’s learning, I have some terrific resources available.
“Ag Week” begins March 11 with another agriculture learning opportunity, “Ag Day” coming next week on the 20th.
