9780766816749: Exploring Agriscience

This full-color exploratory approach to agriscience helps students develop a firm intellectual and skill-based foundation for further career preparations in agriscience. Its easy to follow format accommodates the middle school students need for a broad introduction to such subjects as horticulture, animal science, environmental science, biotechnology, and careers in agricultural-related fields. Numerous hands-on exercises and superb full-color illustrations help reinforce major principles, while highlighted articles, featuring FFA Career Development Events, prepare students for later participation in FFA contests. An instructor's guide, laboratory manual, teacher's resource guide and test bank CD-ROM are also available for this text.
