Exploring Agriculture Through Poetry 

Unit Plan
English Language Arts

This unit plan attempts to raise student awareness of the importance of agricultural processes, practices and issues in our lives today and encourage the exploration of agricultural topics through poetry. The underlying assumption is that both poetry and agriculture are about the wonder and pleasure that humans can find in the natural world, and that whether through words or through nurturing plants and animals, humans can observe, appreciate, express and participate in the creativity, magic and celebration of creation.
