Henrico County Public Schools, Glen Allen, VA. Virginia Vocational Curriculum and Resource Center.
Designed to supplement the Agriscience Education for the Middle School curriculum guide, this instructional packet provides lessons to enable agriscience teachers to bring basic science concepts into the classroom through practical, hands-on activities and experiments. The course is designed to develop in sixth-grade students an awareness of the relationship between agriculture and science. It is divided into seven duty areas: becoming oriented to agriscience, describing agriscience, introducing plant and animal life cycles, communicating with others, introducing agricultural mechanics technology, introducing ecology and conservation, and identifying career opportunities in agriculture. An introductory sheet to each duty area lists competencies/tasks, two to seven lessons, and evaluation. Each lesson consists of any or all of these components: student objective; references; equipment, supplies, materials; presentation (introduction, motivation, discussion with questions and answers, other activities, conclusion, and evaluation); evaluation (test) with answer key; and handouts and worksheets.
