implement curriculum-based topics
The project AGRICULTURE program currently consists of three topics that support learning in Alberta Social Studies and Science curriculum, the competencies, literacy and numeracy at junior and senior high school levels. Topics are developed for two main, or targeted, grade levels.
The project AGRICULTURE program is designed so teachers can choose to implement activities as a project-based unit OR select and integrate individual activities for one to two-class lessons in existing units. Student learning sources address a range of curriculum-centred concepts and should be selected from according to the needs and interests of students.
