Middle School Begins a New Explore Class

December 12, 2018

This year Lexington Middle School started the CTE Agriculture class as part of the Explore rotation of classes.  CTE indicates it is a Career and Technical Education class, which means its focus is on preparing students for college and career opportunities.  The main purpose this first year is to expose students to the diverse field of agriculture topics and understand the basic areas of agriculture. We have studied the history of agriculture and the innovations and technology that have changed it, the four main areas of agriculture as well as the livestock industry.  In addition, we have talked about the water resources in Nebraska and its effect on agriculture in the state. We also learned about the role of corn in our lives. As the program grows, look for more in-depth topics about the world of agriculture and careers that are available in this field.
