Abstract or Summary
  • The lack of first-hand experience or knowledge about farming in the general population of the United States is a concern among scientists as many current environmental issues are strongly linked to agriculture. Developing agricultural literacy and an appreciation for our dependance on limited resources is important for preparing future generations to make informed decisions on environmental and sustainability issues. Support for incorporating agriculture into the science curriculum at the pre-college level comes from a variety of sources including The National Research Council, education administrators, cooperative extension directors and college professors. Minto-Brown is a multi-use city park in Salem, OR including a wildlife refuge and 240 acres of farm fields. This curricular unit is part of an education program at Minto-Brown, developed in response to recent controversy over pesticide use in the park. The unit, "Sharing the Land!" is designed for grade levels 5 and 6. It addresses issues on sustainability in agriculture and interactions between agriculture, wildlife and recreationists. Problem solving skills are emphasized in the various activities. Library research and personal interviews provided technical information for the unit and classroom observation and testing were used in designing activities. Materials for the unit, (a teaching kit) can be checked out from the Community Education Office, 2575 Commercial St SE, 97302.
