Teachers,

 

Please check out the valuable and exciting new resources from Dr. Bart Gill (Western Illinois University) and Dr. Chris Haynes (University of Wyoming)!

 

Included in the materials provided are 3 individual "mini" lesson plans that link common agricultural mechanics skills/concepts to the fundamental science concepts needed to perform the skill. Additionally, there are two powerpoint presentations that expand on the science integration component of each of these "mini" lessons. The materials are designed in a manner that any teacher at any level can easily insert the "mini" lessons into existing curriculum to enhance/emphasize the fundamental science content.

 

They will be happy to answer any questions you may have, and appreciate your feedback!
