Agriculture - Grade 3
Third Grade students learn about Wyoming’s livestock industry and how ranchers practice stewardship through this unit's six lessons. Students identify livestock species and explore how Wyoming’s climate and open rangelands are suited to livestock production. Students get up and moving as they learn about rotational grazing, drought, predator management, and other challenges faced by ranchers. As the unit wraps up, students get to meet a steward from the livestock industry and practice their letter writing skills when they send a thank-you note to a rancher from their community.
