This is a power point presentation that covers the nine areas of Agriscience (horticulture, agronomy, entomology, environmental science, aquaculture, mechanical technology, animal science, poultry science, and forestry) and it also lists some careers in each field. I often use this lessons on different careers since the Agriculture Industry is not one that students are usually exposed to.
Terms discussed in the presentation:
agronomy (with careers)
horticulture (with careers)
forestry (with careers)
entomology (with careers)
animal science (with careers)
poultry science (with careers)
aquaculture (with careers)
environmental science and natural resources (with careers)
mechanical technology (with careers)
Both the presentation and the work page can be found in the zip file. There is an answer key included on the last page of the worksheet. The presentation has been left as a pptx so the buyer can add or removed animations as they see fit. The presentation is a pdf of the power point. Feedback is always appreciated.
