This resource is intended to help students look critically at sustainable agriculture in Yukon. It is designed to be adapted to your science, geography, environmental or social studies curriculum. Grades 8 to 12 can benefit from these materials.
There are two parts. The first is a fun, informative look at agriculture in Yukon. Photocopy this section and have your students read it (to save time and paper, photocopy one set for groups of three students), or you may put the set onto overhead sheets and share it with the whole class.
The second part provides a role drama and activities for the students to help them apply the knowledge gained in part one.
This booklet is designed so that it is enjoyable for you and your students to read. All the information about sustainable agriculture in Yukon is contained in one booklet and the activities provided are easy to follow.
This booklet opens the door into agriculture, sustainability, and local and global environmental issues. It may spark areas of interest for you and your students to explore further. Additional educational materials may be obtained from the Agriculture Branch to assist in your research.
