Join educators from across the nation in free livestream events which explore agriculture as a real-world lens for science education. These remote learning opportunities will bring field experts into a virtual classroom to explore anchoring phenomena based on their experiences. The events will offer valuable insight on how educators can help students draw connections across disciplines and grade levels through storylines related to the world of agriculture and food production.
How can we design cattle to better meet human needs?
In this high school Storyline unit on genetics and heredity, students are introduced to ‘SuperCows.’ As they explore the vast variety of cattle breeds, students discover that cattle are specialized for different purposes and while similar, the ‘SuperCows’ are clearly unique. Students wonder what caused this diversity and specificity which leads to investigations about the role of inheritance, DNA and proteins.
Participants who attend a free live session will qualify for CEU or CTLE credits.
