Welcome to the REACCH Secondary Agronomy & Climate Science Curriculum! Units in the curriculum provide material for introducing Science and Agriculture students in Grades 9-12 to agriculture, climate change, related issues such as soils, water, carbon, and nitrogen cycling, and STEM careers. Please read the Getting Started section below and explore individual units for more information.
Each unit includes a PowerPoint for guiding classroom discussion, lab activities, and a series of readings.
