An ag-ucational journey
The Ekka Learning Trail presented by Seqwater will take children on an ag-ucational journey through six trail points. On the trail, they’ll get to taste fresh produce straight from the farm, hold cute baby chicks, meet a dairy farmer and much more.
It's vital that the next generation understands that everything starts with agriculture, from the food we eat to the clothes we wear. The trail will teach them what a day in the life of a dairy farmer entails, how to care for baby chicks, the journey of an egg from farm to plate, the different products made using fleece and more.
The six trail points are:
- Agricultural Hall presented by Seqwater
- Woolworths Fresh Food Pavilion
- RACQ Animal Nursery
- Norco Shed
- Journey of an Egg presented by Australian Eggs
- Sheep Shearing
Students can complete the journey in any order.
The trail booklet, which you can download below, also includes fun Ekka activities that can be completed at the show, in the classroom or at home. Copies of the booklet will also be available at Ekka Gate 5 and Information Booths located at Gate 1 and near Queensland Rail Arrivals.
The booklet is best printed on A3.
