This is a lesson that can be used to teach beginning Introduction to Agriculture students about the types of drugs we administer to animals. Students then get to complete a hands-on lab activity where they learn about and demonstrate four types of injections.
In this lesson, students will discover how to administer three different types of injections (Subcutaneous, Intramuscular, and Intravenous) though a hand-on activity. Students will use actual syringes and needles to administer medication to their animal (hamburger buns in a sandwich bag). Along with the injection lab students will learn the difference between medications and vaccinations, and why they are both important!
3 modules describing on a very elementary level how to read a feed test, how to understand what animals need in their diet for nutrients, and how to balance a simple cattle ration using hay and silage.
Beef External Parts Grade Level: 9th - 12thSubject: Animal ScienceDuration: 50 minutesDOK Level: 1SAMR Level: SubstitutionIndiana Standard: AS-1.2 Describe the functions of the animal body systems and system componentsObjective: Students will be able to identify the given body parts of cattle with 100% accuracy. Procedure: Present the slide show External Parts BeefStop at slide 1Have the students use the internet to find the names of the identified partsHandout a paper copy of slide 1Check that all students have identified the partsMove to slide 2Have the students name the parts as you unveil the correct namesHave the students assess google classroom to access Beef Parts IDHave the students play the game until they achieve 90% accuracyHave them screen shot the score and submit to the google classroom assignment Product or Assessment: The students will be assessed in class. They will be given five body parts to identify. Each body part will be worth 3 points.
Demonstration Grade Level: 9th-12thSubject: Animal ScienceDuration: 150 minutesDOK Level: 4SAMR Level: Substitution Indiana Standard: AS-11.1 Acquire and demonstrate communication skills such as writing, public speaking, and listening while refining oral, written, and verbal skillsObjective: Students will demonstrate a skill learned over the semester with 98% accuracy. Procedure: Show the video How to give a demonstration?Have a class discussion of topic ideas and expectationsAnswer questionsHave the students create a brainstorming list of four ideasAllow the students class time to complete their demonstrationGive the Demonstration Project Guide and Rubric through google classroomHave students present their demonstrations to the classProduct or Assessment: Students will be assessed on their presentation with the provided rubric and brainstorming sheet.
The goal of this activity is to demystify the science behind Punnett Squares and explore data and statistical representations in genetics and heredity. Begin by breeding two parent mice and observe the ratios in the pie chart as more offspring are bred in each litter. Compare the ratios between different pairs of parents and identify how they are different or similar. Finally, use the simulation controls to show gametes and reveal how each offspring obtained its genotype from its parents.
This lesson explains directional terminology used to describe the positions of structures relative to other structures or locations in the body. Learners will apply directional terminology by dissecting a three-dimensional object. Lesson developed from original resource by Bobbi D. Dittmer.
This lesson explores the swine industry: locating major physical characteristics, describing common breeds, selection of superior animals, and contrasting production systems and marketing methods of swine and hogs. Adapted from New Mexico Animal, Plant, and Science Lesson Plan Library.
Students will be able to use correct terminology for livestock (e.g. bovine, steer, ewe, ram). This lesson is used in exploring agriculture, animal science lesson. Written by Kathryn Savat.
This activity is a web-based inquiry on how to control the spread of rabies in a community. Students are given a hypothetical situation in which rabies has been found in their home community. Interaction between the people, pets, wildlife, and livestock in the area is emphasized. An informative lesson on rabies is included. Students are asked to use different resources to research and develop an action plan to stop the spread of rabies in their community.
This lecture with slides introduces the functions of ruminant animals, parts and processes of the ruminant digestive system, and details the first two components of the digestive system of ruminant animals. Created by: Arelene Barrett, Dennis Bratton, Mariah Gumphry, Haley Vrazel
This lesson presents students with information regarding the differences between ruminant and monogastric digestive systems. The project portion of this lesson allows students to work in small groups and get creative to demonstrate their knowledge of these two digestive systems.
Sim Steer Simulation Grade Level: 9th-12thSubject: Animal ScienceDuration: 2 daysDOK Level: 3SAMR Level: Redefinition Indiana Standard: AS-8.1 Identify products or services that animals provide humansAS-9.1 Identify facilities needed to house and produce each animal species safely and efficiently AS-9.2 Select equipment and implement animal handling procedures and improvements AS-9.3 Identify optimal environmental conditions for animalsObjective: Students will apply their knowledge learned in the unit to make decision and manage a steer farm simulation that earns a profit.Procedure: Have the students write down two items they remember from yesterday's lectureDemonstrate the Sim Steer ProgramHave the students access the website/program and create a user accountHand out the project guidelines Explain the expectations and timelineAllow the rest of the time for the students to manage their herdDay 2 (end of class) Have the students write their reflection paragraphProduct or Assessment: Students will be assessed on their reflection paragraphs
This lesson introduces principles of small animal health care with research to identify and describe common diseases or parasites, symptoms and causes, treatment, and prevention.
Our PBL project is about zoo habitats! A guest speaker, from the Indianapolis Zoo, is coming to our classroom to give the students an idea about how the zoo works and how the animals live. In preparation for their trip to the zoo, the students will do some research on different animals and their habitats that will see on their visit. After their trip, the students will prepare a presentation on the zoo habitats compared to their habitats in the wild. After their presentation, the students are going to make a book including what they learned and any improvements they have for the zoo. We will send that book to our guest speaker.
