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 assist seventh-grade students in exploring science as it relates to agriculture. It is divided into eight duty areas: becoming oriented to agriscience exploration, recognizing the importance of agriculture/agriscience, conserving natural resources, exploring research in agriculture, exploring plant science, exploring animal science, introducing basic laboratory skills, and encouraging personal development. An introductory sheet to each duty area lists competencies/tasks, two to nine 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. Equipment lists are appended. (YLB)
