Animal Biology



Course description

Animal Science is designed to engage students in hands-on laboratories and activities to explore the world of animal agriculture. Student experiences will involve the study of animal anatomy, physiology, behavior, nutrition, reproduction, health, selection and marketing. Students will explore hands-on projects and activities to learn the characteristics of animal science and work on major projects and problems similar to those that animal science specialists, such as veterinarians, zoologists, livestock producers and industry personnel, face in their respective careers. Students will investigate, experiment and learn about documenting a project, solving problems and communicating their solutions to their peers and to members of professional industries. This course provides students the opportunity to participate in FFA events at school and in the community. Please note, animals will be used as an educational tool throughout the year. These include but are not limited to foster kittens from the NOAH center and other small and large animals.
