Junior Ag Round Up

28/02/2017

Junior Ag round up

 
With the term now back in full swing, the junior ag classes are all busy working their way through the tasks at hand. As many of the students in these classes have not studied agriculture before, the units for this term cover all bases in pretty simple detail. We have been looking at animal digestion, different types of plants, and how seeds germinate. The grade sevens and eights this term will be participating in the annual sunflower growing competition hosted by the University of Queensland Gatton Campus. For this students will plant sunflower seeds on the 28th of Feb and observe them as they sprout and grow. Students will gather the results of this trial and submit them to UQ later in term 2. There will be an official weigh in held in Gatton however schools that are a little further afield can submit their results online and still be part of the prize categories.  If you would like some more information on anything that is happening this term within Junior Ag Science please feel free to contact me on 46568888.

Cheers, Mr Huth
