Agriculture--Agriculture Science--Seed Germination. Kit No. 51. Instructor's Manual [and] Student Learning Activity Guide.
An instructor's manual and student activity guide on seed germination are provided in this set of prevocational education materials which focuses on the vocational area of agriculture. (This set of materials is one of ninety-two prevocational education sets arranged around a cluster of seven vocational offerings: agriculture, home economics, distributive education, health occupations, world of work, trade and industry, and office occupations.) The instructor's guide is organized into the following elements: title of activity, duration of activity (six to seven class periods not including 30 days of monitoring plants and totaling data), activity goals, eight instructional objectives, related vocational clusters, and activity implementation (description, materials needed, safety considerations, teacher preparation prior to class, during the class, follow-up activities, answer key to student check point activities, and masters for duplication [e.g., student answer sheet, plant growth chart]). The student activity guide provides step-by-step instructions (narrative and illustrations) for completing each instructional objective (e.g., list five ways seeds benefit humans, plant two seeds, maintain growing plants). At the end of each set of instructions is a student check point (evaluation activity). Six occupational descriptions (e.g., vegetable farmer, farmworker, harvest worker) conclude the document. (JH)
