Kindergarten

Below you will find educational materials for kindergarten 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

Plant or Animal: E.K.10.2 With teacher guidance, develop questions to conduct a structured investigation to determine ways to conserve Earths resources (i.e., reduce, reuse, and recycle) and communicate results.

Cotton: L.K.2 Students will demonstrate an understanding of how living things change in form as they go through the general stages of a life cycle.

Honey: L.K.2 Students will demonstrate an understanding of how living things change in form as they go through the general stages of a life cycle.

Peanuts: L.K.2 Students will demonstrate an understanding of how living things change in form as they go through the general stages of a life cycle.

Soybeans: L.K.2 Students will demonstrate an understanding of how living things change in form as they go through the general stages of a life cycle.

Horticulture: L.K.2.1 Use informational test or other media to make observations about plants as they change during the life cycle (e.g., germination, growth , reproduction, death) and use models (e.g., drawing , writing, dramatization, or technology) to communicate findings.

Equine: L.K.3A Students will demonstrate an understanding of what animals and plants need to live and grow.

Sweet Potatoes: L.K.3A.1 With teacher guidance, conduct a structured investigation to determine what plants need to live and grow (water, light, and a place to grow). Measure growth by directly comparing plants with other objects. 

Corn: L.K.3A.1 With teacher guidance, conduct a structured investigation to determine what plants need to live and grow (water, light, and a place to grow).

Poultry: L.K.3A.2 Construct explanations using observations to describe and report what animals need to live and grow (food, water, shelter, and space).

Swine: L.K.3A.2 Construct explanations using observations to describe and report what animals need to live and grow (food, water, shelter, and space).

Aquaculture: L.K.3A.2 Construct explanations using observations to describe and report what animals need to live and grow (food, water, shelter, and space).

Forestry: L.K.3B Students will demonstrate an understanding of the interdependence of living things and the environment in which they live.

Forage: L.K.3B.1 Observe and communicate that animals get food from plants or other animals. Plants make their own food and need light to live and grow.
