This packet contains two science learning activities that can be used in agricultural education courses. The first activity, "Using Ethanol as a Solvent," is intended to help students describe the characteristics of a solvent, to enhance student observational skills dealing with physical changes, and to demonstrate the acid or alkaline nature of materials. The second activity, "Determining Color Trait Dominance," is intended to help students determine the coat colors resulting from several pairings of genetically different mice. The lesson plans for the activities consist of the following elements: agricultural subjects and science principles included in the lesson, agricultural applications, student objectives, activity length, group size, vocabulary, materials required, instructional strategies and procedures (overview and results), key questions, and evaluation. One or two references are given for each activity, and each includes a data record and observation sheet. (KC)
