First Grade

Below you will find educational materials for first 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.

Rice: E.2.1 Explain how individual wants and needs impact the production of goods and services.

Horticulture: L.1.1.1 Construct explanations using first hand observations or other media to describe the structures of different plants (i.e., root, stem, leaves, flowers, and fruit). Report findings using drawings, writing, or models.

Cotton: L.1.1.4 Create a model which explains the function of each plant structure (roots, stem, leaves, petals, flowers, seeds.

Forage: L.1.1.4 Create a model which explains the function of each plant structure (roots, stem, leaves, petals, flowers, seeds.

Honey: L.1.2.2 Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information through labeled drawings, the life cycle (egg, larva, pupa, adult) of pollinating insects (e.g., bees, butterflies).

Grains: L.1.3A Students will demonstrate an understanding of what plants need from the environment for growth and repair.

L.1.3A.1 Conduct structured investigations to make and test predictions about what plants need to live, grow, and repair including water, nutrients, sunlight, and space. Develop explanations, compare results, and report findings.

Forestry: L.1.3A.1 Conduct structured investigations to make an test predictions about what plants need to live, grow, and repair including water, nutrients, sunlight, and space. Develop explanations, compare results, and report findings.
