March 26th – April 10th Choice Board

This is a choice board for you to choose items from. Each week you need to complete one square off of the board. If you are in more than one of my classes you must complete two squares per week off of the board. If you have another idea you think I might be okay with you are welcome to email me and ask if that is an acceptable assignment! Stay safe and healthy, GO OUTSIDE, and spend some time with the ones who love you! I miss you guys and cant wait to be back at school with y’all!

Let me know if you have any questions or need anything at all!

Lesson Introduction / Motivation:
Ask students to name a part on a car. Make a list of 5–8 parts on the chalkboard. Ask students to briefly explain each parts function in the operation of the car. Then ask students “Why is it important for a car mechanic to be able to identify and know the function of these parts?” After a brief discussion, ask students “Is it important for a livestock producer to know the parts of an animal? If so, why?”

Presentation/Explanation:
Through this vivid PowerPoint, the students will learn the basics about the anatomy of different livestock species and will be able to understand how each livestock species is different.

Lesson Closure:
Have the students show what they know.  The students will get out a piece of paper and will be assigned a different body system. The students should write down everything that they know about that system and turn it in.
