PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this PowerPoint (.pptx) lecture, students will learn about different types of agriculture and the main goal of agriculture: growing more food on less land. Students will be introduced to different practices used to meet that goal (i.e. pesticides and fertilizers) and the environmental impacts of those practices. Students will learn about how honeybees are being affected by pesticides and what the implications of Colony Collapse Disorder are for us. Alternative methods that may be used to reduce the impact of agriculture are put forth, including the use of genetically modified organisms. Finally, nutrition and world hunger is discussed.

This video includes hyperlinks to videos on YouTube that will expand upon the discussion. One such video is about 10 minutes long. A question sheet that goes along with that video is included.

There is also a student notesheet that goes along with this lecture on which students fill in the blanks as they view the presentation.

These lecture notes were designed for use in a high school AP Environmental Science class.
