Title: Determining the Role of Science and Technology in Agricultural Production


1
Determining the Role of Science and Technology in
Agricultural Production
2
Next Generation Science/Common Core Standards
Addressed!
  • RST.6-8.1 Cite specific textual evidence to
    support analysis of science and technical texts.
    (MS-LS1-3)
  • RI.6.8 Trace and evaluate the argument and
    specific claims in a text, distinguishing claims
    that are supported by reasons and evidence from
    claims that are not. (MS-LS1-3)
  • SL.8.5 Integrate multimedia and visual displays
    into presentations to clarify information,
    strengthen claims and evidence, and add interest.
    (MS-LS1-2)

Agriculture, Food and Natural Resource Standards
addressed!
  • BS.01. NCAE Standard Assess factors that have
    influenced the evolution of biotechnology in
    agriculture (e.g., historical events, societal
    trends, ethical and legal implications, etc.).
  • BS.01.01. Investigate and explain the
    relationship between past, current and emerging
    applications of biotechnology in agriculture
    (e.g., major innovators, historical developments,
    potential applications of biotechnology, etc.).
  • Sample Measurement The following sample
    measurement strands are provided to guide the
    development of measurable activities (at
    different levels of proficiency) to assess
    students attainment of knowledge and skills
    related to the above performance indicator. The
    topic represented by each strand are not
    all-encompassing.
  • BS.01.01.01.a. Research and summarize the
    evolution of biotechnology in agriculture.

  • Determining the Role of Science and Technology in
    Agricultural Production

7
Determining the Role of Science and Technology in
Agricultural Production
  • Interest Approach
  • If you were to compile a list of areas that are
    related to science what would they be? Complete
    a list containing ten areas and of those listed
    circle the ones that relate to agriculture.

9
What are Science and Technology?
  • Science and Technology go together and are very
    important to agricultural production.
  • A. Science is the knowledge of the world
    around us based on general facts and laws.

10
What are Science and Technology?
  • 1. Agriscience The use of science in
    producing food, fiber, and shelter.
  • 2. Agriscience involves the Scientific Method,
    which involves asking questions and seeking
    answers in an organized way.
  • 3. Research is the careful and diligent search
    for answers to problems.
  • B. Technology is the practical use of science

11
Steps in the Scientific Method
  • Step 1 Identify the problem
  • Step 2 Review related literature
  • Step 3 Form a hypothesis, a predicted answer to
    the problem.
  • Step 4 Design and conduct an experiment to test
    the hypothesis.
  • Step 5 Collect Data
  • Step 6 Form a conclusion or judgement based on
    the results of the experiment.
  • Step 7 Write and/or present a research report.

12
How does Biological and Physical Science relate
to Agriculture Production?
  • What are the major areas of biological and
    physical science related to agriculture?
  • A. The study of living things is called
    Biological Science or life science.
  • 1. Botany is the study of plants.
  • A. Horticulture is the science of growing
    plants for food, comfort, and beauty.
  • B. Forestry is the science of growing and
    using forests.

13
How does Biological and Physical Science relate
to Agriculture Production?
  • 2. Zoology The study of animals
  • A. Entomology is a branch of zoology that
    deals with insects and related small animals.
  • B. Animal Science is an area of biological
    science dealing with the production of animals.
  • C. The science of water farming is Aquaculture.

14
How does Biological and Physical Science relate
to Agriculture Production?
  • 3. The science that involves ways to wisely
    use and protect the things around us is
    Environmental Science.
  • 4. Plant and animal Pathology involve the
    study of diseases.

15
How does Biological and Physical Science relate
to Agriculture Production?
  • B. Physical Science is the study of non-living
    things around us.
  • 1. The study of the environment in which
    plants and animals live is Earth Science.

16
What is the role of technology in agriculture
production?
  • III. New agriculture technologies have resulted
    in improved methods of producing food, fiber, and
    shelter.
  • A. Biotechnology Involves using biology to
    develop new products or processes.
  • B. Genetic Engineering A form of
    biotechnology that involves the changing of the
    genetic makeup of living organisms.
  • C. The use of machines and equipment to do
    work is known as Mechanical Technology.

17
What is the role of technology in agriculture
production?
  • D. Precision Farming Uses cropping practices
    that improve yields based on the needs of the
    land.
  • E. Remote Sensing Technology Gathers and
    records data from a great distance.
  • F. Laser Technology Involves the use of a
    device that produces an intense, narrow, beam of
    light known as coherent light

18
What is the role of technology in agriculture
production?
  • G. Radiation A form of energy that travels as
    waves, is being applied to food processing and
    insect control.
  • H. The use of computers to do mathematics and
    science problems is Computer Science.

19
Determining the Role of Science and Technology in
Agricultural Production
  • Summary
  • 1. What is science and technology
  • 2. What are the major areas of biological and
    physical science and how are they related to
    agriculture production.

Student Learning Activities
  • Sample tests are available in the Lesson Plan
    tab.

22
  • Here is a foldable that you can make with your
    students about the scientific method. You can
    also make one similar to this one with the
    vocabulary words for this lesson.

Inside definition
Outside word
23
  • You can watch a Myth Busters video with your
    students, and give them the work sheet that is on
    the following slide. The worksheet is meant to be
    filled out during the video about the scientific
    method used in the video.
