YW Curriculum: H&S in Agriculture

Health and Safety Awareness for Working Teens in Agriculture Curriculum

This curriculum is designed for teens and young workers in grades 9-12 who will be working in agricultural employment settings.  By teaching this curriculum, your students will be better prepared to deal with hazards in the workplace and in the classroom.

These materials are designed for use with students in grades 8-12. Students 18 years and older will be affected by different labor laws as they are adults and no longer covered by the "child labor laws". The information contained in this curriculum is still very applicable for young adult workers.

Materials include PDF documents containing teacher preparation materials, guided activities, learning objectives and masters for student handouts, answer keys, and other materials templates. Also provided are Powerpoint (PPT) slide presentations to use with each unit, and some video links (that will take you to other websites for viewing the videos).
