CCPLT12.3 Irrigation and Water Systems, Plant Science Complete Curriculum


Take the stress out of Sunday night, by having your lesson planning done for you. Feel confident in front of your class because this curriculum includes everything that you need to engage your students and teach to the standard.

Best of all, no expertise or prior knowledge in Plant Science is required. 

This lesson on Irrigation and Watering Systems covers availability of water for plants - capillary water, gravitational water, hygroscopic water - along with levels of soil saturation, water requirements for plants, water loss, plant stress, types of irrigation systems - hand watering, impact sprinklers, rotary sprinklers, drip/trickle irrigation, and sub irrigation.

The included hands-on lab is interactive, challenging, and fun (while also sneaking in some practical applications of math) as students are challenged to a see if their hand watering skills are more effective than a traditional sprinkler. 

This lesson is also an excellent addition to a Greenhouse Management class.

It is aligned to the National AFNR Standards for Plant Systems Career Pathway and the Georgia Curriculum Standards for General Horticulture and Plant Science Course
