Elementary through High School Science course based on National Ag in the Classroom Curriculum and various Ag programs
- Preschool (4 yr olds) through 1st grade will meet on Monday from 9:00a-9:45a. Their lessons will be age-appropriate science activities to engage their young brains. We will have a farm-related story time followed by a craft.
- 2nd grade-4th grade will meet on Monday from 10:30a-12p. These lessons are a little more challenging to encourage thought, and we will explore various agriculture themes.
- 5th grade-7th grade will meet on Monday 12:30p-2:30p. These lessons are more STEM focused and will involve group projects as well as individual activites.
- 8th grade-12th grade will meet on Monday from 3p-5p. These lessons will also be STEM focused involving group and individual projects. We will discuss topics that are affecting farmers today and potential solutions.
Spring time is just around the corner, and this Springs FarmSchool will be packed with fun, and innovative lessons to engage your child in learning about agriculture.
PreK-1st- Our youngest students will learn about seeds. They will focus on the development and needs of a seeds and plants. Towards the end of the semester, they will also have the opportunity to hatch chicks and learn about embryology.
2nd-4th- Digging a little deeper, our elementary students are going to explore soil vs aquaponics. We will get a chance to plant and grow some vegetables. Then we will end the semester with our embryology program.
5th-7th: Our middle school students will be working on some new group projects this semester. We will be learning about soil nutrients and plant propagation. We will also be discovering more about fruits, vegetables and grains.
8th-12th: Our high school students will be performing some group and individual STEM projects. We will learn about algaculture and aeroponics as well as soil-based plant growth. We will discuss genetics or our food and its role in our current state of agriculture in America.
All of our students will be assisting with a FarmSchool Garden this semester which will be used for donation to a local food bank.

A little about the teacher
Hi, I am Jessica! I have been a homeschool mom for 6 years to my three children (12, 11 and 9 years old). I grew up working on a farm but transitioned into healthcare as an adult. After my children were born, I always made it a priority to get them out in nature for hands on learning experiences. Five years ago, my family and I moved to our homestead in Johnston County. We have learned so much more through gardening, composting, raising livestock and bees. We are also active in our local 4H community.
I am excited to be able to offer your children some ag-based learning opportunities, and can’t wait to see everyone this spring!
