Why Lesson Planet?
Livestock managers reinforce math and science skills while learning about the nutrients found in manure. They predict which animal produces the largest amount and which animal's manure contains the most nitrogen. Finally, they compare their predictions with the weights listed in the table and use calculators to complete a worksheet. The publisher states that many Common Core standards can be met through this lesson for the middle school grades, but be aware that you will have to put some time into adapting it to your specific intent.
