Course Description

Introduction to Agriscience is an exploratory course that provides Grade 7 students the opportunity to gain knowledge and acquire skills in the areas of animal science, plant science, ecology, conservation, and agriscience careers. Instruction also focuses on Agriscience technologies in the areas of woodworking, electricity, metal fabrication, and power mechanics.  Students utilize knowledge and skills acquired in the classroom to develop the Supervised Agricultural Experience Program (SAEP).



Grades will be calculated on 100 point scale.  All grades will be averaged together to calculate the grade at the end of each nine week period.  Grades will be taken from class assignments, hands on projects, and participation in the class.
