Agriculture Department Update

Submitted by Ms. Caise

The agriculture department and the FFA have been busy these first 5 weeks of school!

  • Agriculture 1 students have been learning about the National FFA Organization and discovering the vast world of agriculture.  They explored what life on earth would be like without agriculture or as a subsistence farmer by creating a journal.  Students are currently researching agricultural careers that are of interest to them.
  • Agriculture 2 students have been studying soils and soil conservation.  Students are able to determine slope of a given area. They also can determine the type of crop rotation and tillage system that should be used in order to conserve soil using the Universal Soil Loss Equation.

FACS Classes

Sigler FCS

In the Introduction to FACS classes, we are currently working on family parenting issue topics. The students are developing presentations that will be given to the class. In the Living Environments class, we have been taking on the roles of landscaping designers.  The class was divided into groups and they were given the task to plan, design, and create a blueprint to present to King Nebuchadnezzar.  The gardens are to be designed to cheer up the king’s ailing wife.  In our Foods class, we are currently doing projects on a famous chef that the students have each been assigned. The students are to find out as much information about their assigned chefs as they can.
