Second Grade Unit Plan

Agricultural Pride in Macon County is designed to help students recognize the impact that agriculture has on the community in which they live. Students will learn that changes from the past to the present have had a major effect on the agriculture. Student will explore what their community has to offer for their families in crops, livestock and handicrafts. Through this learning experience, each student will ask themselves, What can we do to keep that Pride alive?
