Berryman, Bonny; Schultz, Deborah
This curriculum guide consists of instructional materials for teaching 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students about farming and the important role agriculture has had in the history and economy of North Dakota. The activities can be used to enhance the teaching of language arts, art, social studies, and science. The guide covers many aspects of agriculture, including farms, farmers, wheat, livestock, other North Dakota crops, soil, chemicals, farm machinery and inventions, railroads, and marketing. Each topic includes: (1) lesson plans describing supplies needed, background information and procedures, and learning activities; (2) task-card shapes (images) and activities that can be used for independent research projects, creative writing book covers, bulletin board shapes, or for mounting poetry or handwriting; (3) games designed to reinforce vocabulary and specific concepts of agriculture topics covered in the curriculum; (4) word hunts; and (5) poetry with agricultural themes that can be used for studying metaphors and similes, introducing a lesson, practicing handwriting, or stimulating students to write poetry about farming. Includes answer sheets and useful references. (LP)
