This five-lesson unit for grades 8-12 uses agriculture to introduce chemistry and environmental science concepts in a way that is relevant to students’ lives. Students will learn about plant nutrients, soil, chemical compounds, solutions and dilutions, and water quality as they explore different agricultural situations that farmers encounter each day in providing our food, fiber, flowers, fuel, and forest resources.
