A recommended unit of study in California agriculture education for third grade

A unit to teach basic agricultural education to third grade students was piloted to evaluate effectiveness. The first topic of this unit, which is an introduction to agriculture, was piloted and evaluated in a third grade class. Revisions were made to improve the topic including adding an activity and deleted foothills from another activity. The first topic was successful because it taught students what agriculture is and that it is an important part of their daily lives. This unit was deemed to be an effective way to teach agriculture to third grade students in California.
