Level 2 Agriculture

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs C. Lincoln

Level 2 Agriculture will allow students to explore and make sense of a range of different aspects of Agriculture and Horticulture. During term one students will complete two practical unit standards. These standards will allow students to study plant propagation techniques and grow their own plants from cuttings. 

As we move into the winter months, learning moves to more theory related Achievement Standards. Students will be introduced to different aspects of food science. This will provide students with the scientific knowledge and skills, to understand the composition and nutritional value of raw / natural food products that are produced and marketed in New Zealand.  

We will also study soil formation in New Zealand and make sense of different soil types. Students will also investigate the use of organisms, such as insects in the Agricultural Industry. This course will make use of the gardens and farm area that we have at school.
