The packet of 10 curriculum guides, intended to aid in planning and developing materials for the introduction of agribusiness and natural resource education, can be used in statewide educational programs. The guides are appropriate for all levels from elementary to vocational schools and community colleges, although emphasis is on the secondary level. The 10 curriculum guides include the following: (1) agribusiness and natural resource education, (2) animal science, (3) agronomic science, (4) agricultural mechanics, (5) farm business management, (6) agricultural supplies and services, (7) agricultural products processing and distribution, (8) horticulture, (9) agricultural resources and conservation, and (10) occupational experience in agriculture. Each contains units and problem areas for each topic plus appropriate competencies and learning activities. No indication of the level of instruction is made since the agribusiness and natural resource education guide provides this information. In each of the 10 guides is a list of references with sources of references and instructional aids for the nine topic areas. (LJ)
