Students are able to turn milk into mozzarella cheese in one class period.  This is a great way to demonstrate lactic acid fermentation and the food making process- one of the original biotechnology examples!  Rennet can be purchased online, or you can talk to your local cheese plant to see if they will donate the small amount you will need.  Other ingredients are supplies can easily be purchased in your local grocery store.

This lesson is designed to follow the Intermediate SAEs:The Next Step. The objective is to continue to move students through the research and development of their Foundational Career SAE. The students will continue to work on their Foundational SAE project based on their career interest, but research topics at the advanced level. The teacher may choose to only use the Foundational SAE project or they can also include an immersion SAE project that students keep track of their time, income and expenses over the course of the class. The students will participate in weekly assignments for their Foundational SAE and if they are completing an immersion SAE they will keep track of their hours each week. Starting SAE projects in the classroom should be simple for the teacher and students. Minimum expectations that can still produce success for all students would be tracking 1-hour of SAE time per week, exploring one career topic per week, and recording one financial entry per month. A final report or project at the end of the class would also be a minimum expectation for all students.

The objective of this lesson is to help the students better understand their agricultural career and to share the career with their peers.  The students select an agricultural career using the Ag in the Classroom lesson - Agricultural Careers.  They then research their career and prepare an index card with information to share.  The students are instructed to create a simple outfit showing the items a person in their career might wear for their work.  The students then conduct a Ag Career Fashion Show.  They dress up and read from their card the information they learned about the career.  To make it more fun add a party light and music for them to walk the cat walk for the fashion show!

The Scope of the Agribusiness Industry unit breaks the agribusiness sectors down into input or output or sales versus services.  To help the students understand what agricultural inputs and outputs are in the agricultural products and service industries they conduct a simulation using a no bake cookie recipe.  The students are broken up into pairs or small groups and each group is given a card explainng their agribusiness.  The students create a promotional flyer or sign for their agribusiness.  One group represents the farmer and they have to visit each of the agribusinesses in order to produce their product.

Each student creates a poster exhibiting their career choices from kindergarten through high school or their adult life depending on where they are in their career planning.  The students identify the career clusters and pathways that best fit their career choices across their timeline or pathway.  The students become familiar with the career clusters and pathways.  They also learn about new career opportunities that fall under their chosen cluster or pathway.  The students share their poster with the class, which leads to a discussion of how our career choices from 4th grade on don't really change career cluster, but they do change pathways within the cluster.  The students compare their career pathway poster with their "Me" poster (lesson available in Wise Learn, search Me Poster) they made previously to determine the characteristics they have or skills they may need to develop for their future career.

To help the students self analyze their strenghts and weaknesses I have them complete a "Me" poster.  The poster is folded intor 4 quadrants with a diamond in the middle.  The students fill in each quadrant answering why, what, how and what if.  This really gets them thinking about why they are the way they are.  They decorate their posters and then they identify three employability skills that they think they have fully developed and can demonstrate at work.  The students share their posters and then apply their self awareness to their career interest.
