Fifth Grade

Below you will find educational materials for fifth grade teachers exploring agriculture in the classroom. All lesson plans were created based on Mississippi’s 2018 College-and-Career Readiness Standards in Math, Science, and Social Studies as well as the National Agricultural Literacy Outcomes, and the Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation’s recognized commodities.

This curriculum was developed by the Mississippi State University School of Human Science for the Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation’s Ag in the Classroom Program.

Science

Conservation: E.5.10 Students will demonstrate an understanding of the effects of human interaction with Earth and how Earth’s natural resources can be protected and conserved. E.5.10.1 Collect and organize scientific ideas that individuals and communities can use to conserve Earth’s natural resources and systems (e.g., implementing watershed management practices to conserve water resources, utilizing no-till farming to improve soil fertility, reducing emissions to abate air pollution, or recycling to reduce landfill waste).

Corn: E.5.10 Students will demonstrate an understanding of the effects of human interaction with Earth and how Earth’s natural resources can be protected and conserved.

Forestry: E.5.10 Students will demonstrate an understanding of the effects of human interaction with Earth and how Earth’s natural resources can be protected and conserved.

Soybeans: E.5.10 Students will demonstrate an understanding of the effects of human interaction with Earth and how Earth’s natural resources can be protected and conserved.

Cotton: P.5.5A Students will demonstrate an understanding of the physical properties of matter.

P.5.5A.3 Analyze matter through observations and measurements to classify materials (e.g., powders, metals, minerals, or liquids) based on their properties (e.g., color, hardness, reflectivity, electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, response to magnetic forces, solubility, or density).

Honey: L.5.3A.1 Research and communicate the basic process of photosynthesis that is used by plants to convert light energy into chemical energy that can be stored and released to fuel an organism’s activities.

Horticulture: L.5.3A Students will demonstrate an understanding of photosynthesis and the transfer of energy from the sun into chemical energy necessary for plant growth and survival.

Sweet Potato: L.5.3A Students will demonstrate an understanding of photosynthesis and the transfer of energy from the sun into chemical energy necessary for plant growth and survival. 

Peanuts: P.5.5B Students will demonstrate an understanding of mixtures and solutions.
