Learning Lab Kits were originally created for exploratory learning in grades 3-12. The hands-on activities provide information in a unique way that encourages youth to explore, reflect, and apply knowledge. Now, these kits are used in many settings—at county and state fair judging, in classrooms and after-school learning programs, and in agricultural association and group meetings.

Learning activities can include ideas like these:

  • Hands-on introduction of agricultural, companion animal, and related topics through observing, communicating, organizing, comparing, relating, inferring, and applying knowledge and information.
  • Learning stations that reinforce animal sciences and agricultural lessons on anatomy, conformation, breeds, equipment, plants. and plant parts, etc.
  • Skillathon or quiz stations in which youth compete as they demonstrate their knowledge.
  • Interactive team events that encourage youth to collaborate and cooperate.
  • Exhibits and displays that help students start conversations and promote positive messaging about agriculture and animal science at public events.
