|Title of Presentation or Activity
||This lesson will introduce a variety of animal breeds commonly seen by veterinarians and other veterinary personnel, including those on the FFA State Veterinary Science Clinic & CDE Breeds Identification tests. The lesson will allow students to learn how to identify differences in coloring, hair length and texture as well as different body types and classifications. This lesson covers feline, cattle, canine, equine, exotic, goats, sheep, and swine breeds. Students can get creative when they make a study guide for each breed and practice classification characteristics. Included in this lesson is a comprehensive worksheet for every breed.
|Animal Circulatory System
||This lesson and associated activates will teach students about the different circulatory systems in animals. Students will understand different animals have different circulatory systems but they still function the same. The integration of biological science will assist students in understanding how their own bodies are circulated in comparison to animals. Included is an edible blood activity where students can apply what they've learned in a fun and delicious way!
|Animals in Space
||Animals have been an integral part of the human race to space. Before astronauts like John Glenn and Neil Armstrong were able to go into space, different animals were sent on missions for scientists to determine whether or not space travel was safe. In this lesson, students will learn which animals were used to investigate the effects of the space environment on living organisms. They will also learn how animals benefited scientists in other ways, such as by testing out the effectiveness of safety equipment.
|Animals: Characteristics and Classification
||This is a PowerPoint presentation designed to inform students about the characteristics of animals, and how these characteristics are used to classify them.
The PowerPoint also covers radial and bilateral symmetry, and binomial nomenclature.
|Animations of the rotation and revolution of the Earth
