Why Lesson Planet?
When Tom Larson inherited his father's traditional monoculture farm, he was disappointed with the amount of work required for the return in profit. He switched to organic farming methods. Your high schoolers read his story to learn about these practices and how they imitate nature. A reading comprehension and critical thinking worksheet is included to complete and discuss. This can be used in a variety of classes: health, environmental studies, biology, or even social studies.
