Ranch Starter

Grades 3-8 (Kit)

Need a great way to connect students to rangelands? Have them start their own ranch! This kit includes 30 Jiffy peat pellet pots and enough grass seed to fill each pot. As your class learns about cattle grazing, students will see how grazing can help or hurt rangelands and will understand the importance of keeping our lands healthy. Purchase a set of laminated "trails" to use with this activity. 

Instructions for this kit can be found in the lesson plan At Home on the Range found on the National Agricultural Literacy Curriculum Matrix. Additional lesson plans associated with this kit can be found on the National Agricultural Literacy Curriculum Matrix.

    Ranch Starter Kit

    This experiment is fun. I love watching the kids' faces as the peat pot begins to grow in water. It's also fun to see how excited they get when the grass sprouts. Definitely a great way to introduce a basic part of ranching and grazing to students who have never experienced it.
