As the world population increases and urbanization continues, food security has become pivotal in the sustainability agenda. Countries around the globe are looking for long-term solutions to provide sufficient food sources without over-exploiting the ecosystems. Agroforestry is advocated as one possible land management approaches that could form part of the solution in tackling the issues.
While some places use agroforestry to increase the yield of open farmland, there are places that use it as a conservation approach and replace the traditional slash-and-burn agricultural practices to conserve the ecological value of forests. This e-study introduces the concepts of agroforestry in several case studies. Readers could gain a holistic understanding of the opportunities and challenges of implementing agroforestry around the world.

This curriculum builds upon many years of educating students in the garden and scales up content across grades and lessons for instructional scaffolding. It is designed as an interactive teaching tool to be co-taught with classroom teachers and garden instructors as leads. Each lesson connects directly to standards: Next Generation Science, Common Core State, Physical Education, and Environmental and Health Education. The concise and easy to-follow lessons are a packed 45 minutes for preschool through fifth grade. Flexibility is important, so some lessons include several activities that teachers can choose from to accommodate their lesson plans. Consistency is also important, so lessons follow themes and structures found in the Curriculum Map. 360 pages.
There is life all around us! Look out a window, and we see a variety of living things. Even in the middle of a big city, plants grow in between cracks in the sidewalk. All that life is called Biodiversity. Check out the Natural Resources Intern video to learn how high school students are improving biodiversity on an Eastern Oregon ranch. Then, in the Discovery Challenge video, investigate biodiversity at two different sites by collecting data at each sites. With your data, you will be able to compare the biodiversity at the two sites.
This lesson introduces NGSS standards, and those standards are listed in the lesson and is part of the Explore Science Club series, an online Career Connected Learning program developed by the Greater Oregon STEM Hub. To learn more find us at: www.go-stem.org.
