On the Farm STEM: Ecosystem Dynamics & Interactions

Designed for middle school classrooms, this agricultural curriculum covers ecosystems, animal behavior, and symbiosis, using prairie chickens as the main characters. The red box labeled "Ecosystem Dynamics & Interactions" links out to a Google document that neatly categorizes everything that educators will need. The "Unit Overview and Front Matter" and "Unit Skeleton" items, located at the bottom of the document under Additional Resources, are great places to start. Here, educators can find a summary of the core themes addressed in each lesson plan before committing to the materials. The entire unit contains 17 lessons, each with its own teacher guide, lesson presentation, and student handouts. The box at the top of each teacher guide also indicates how long the lesson is expected to take (generally a couple of days). Educators can sift through resources individually or download the entire package via Google Drive. The unit was created by the Food and Agriculture Center for Science Education in collaboration with several other agricultural groups.
