CTS Fod2060

The Power Up! Teaching & Learning Resource supports CTS Fod2060 Milk Products & Eggs and includes approaches, strategies, tools, assessment and student learning support for both independent and classroom lab-based learning contexts.  Icons make navigation through this resource easy and identify differentiated learning, extension, assessment and weblink support for you, as you implement this course. This course provides practical, real world focused learning tasks that start with what students are familiar with — milk product and egg food choices in their daily diets — and extends their knowledge and skills to cooking science and applications.

The All About Food website and corresponding book are designed with teachers in mind: articles, videos and critical thinking questions support classroom curriculum and stimulate discussions about Canada’s agri-food sector. Some topics students can learn about include: ag careers, biotechnology, pesticides, soils and food safety Journey 2050 is a virtual simulation for Grade 7-9 students that explores world food sustainability and seeks to answer the question, “How will we sustainably feed over 9 billion people by the year 2050

Soil Monoliths Collections at the University of Alberta has soil samples from across Alberta, with samples dating back to before the land was cultivated. They have photos of the collection available online.

Ontario Agri-Food Education (OAFE) has a variety of free electronic resources, print resources and video resources that are available either for free, or for a nominal fee. They focus on current issues in agriculture including local and global food issues, modern agriculture production, science and technology and the environment.
Growing Careers is a website that provides information on the career possibilities in agriculture. The site has 75 career profile videos and other career resources for teachers and students.

Investigating Topsoil

This activity is designed to be an introduction to Grade 9 matter cycle, however it can easily be adapted fit the curricular competencies and content connections for Science 7 & 8, Environmental Science 11 & 12, and Science for Citizens 11. The objective of this lesson is to help students establish the importance of topsoil conditions (nutrients, pH) on plant health in order to provide the relevance of studying matter cycles.

 

Watering and Plant Growth

In this activity, students design and carry out an experiment to determine how altering watering conditions (temperature, amount, size of droplet, time of day, mulching, type of soil, etc.) can affect plant growth.

The USDA Ag in the Classroom site has many interesting links for teachers and students - searchable by grade level and topic area (70+ for senior high)

examples: 

Conserving Bumble Bees

This lesson introduces the importance of bumble bees and other pollinators. Using a case study approach, students will examine bumble bee population surveys and use the scientific method to discuss possible causes for the decline of pollinators. Students will then determine which land management conservation strategies in agricultural ecosystems are most successful in attracting and supporting bumble bee populations. 

Feeding a Digital World: From Farm to Fork

Using an interest-based approach in teams, students will create a video using a smart phone or tablet application to educate consumers about where their food comes from.

 

Mystery Juice (9-12th Grade)

Using an inquiry approach, students will develop an investigation to determine the difference between two juices. Food safety will be discussed in relation to the results of the investigations. Students will have the opportunity to discover how pasteurization reduces the number of microorganisms in a food such as juice.
