Michigan 4-H Teaching Resources 

The 4-H office has copies of these curriculum available for copying, and in many cases, can demonstrate how to do the activities and lend you materials to teach these lessons.  Many other curriculum are available, too. Schedule an appointment with Laura to review curriculum available and to receive training for you and your club. Teen Leaders are encouraged to present activities to their clubs. Background training is available in most project areas -- and Missaukee's 4-H Advisory Board pays for 50%-100% of training fees for youth and adult volunteers. 

4-H Youth Business Guide to Success New 4-H entrepreneurship curriculum enhances experience of 4-H volunteers and members working with market animal projects. (Market animal projects; entrepreneurship)

4-H Science Blast in the Class! This curriculum includes a variety of hands-on lesson plans, including experiments for first grade through high school. Lessons are grouped by grade level within content areas. Materials can be used in a variety of formal and informal environments. You may download the entire section or individual activities. (4-h biological science, animal science, environmental & outdoor education, science & engineering)

Teaching Science When You Don’t Know Diddly-Squat Series
Use this series of ready-to-go lesson plans to start teaching inquiry-based science to youth. The purpose is not to teach specific content, but to teach the process of science – asking questions and discovering answers. This activity encourages young people to try to figure things out for themselves rather than just read an answer on the internet or in a book. As a leader, try not to express your opinion, but let the youth engage in arguments based on evidence. (Approaches to learning, cognition and general knowledge, early childhood development, family, science & engineering)

4-H Animal Science Anywhere The Animal Science Anywhere lesson series is designed to help leaders engage 4-H youth at club meetings or events in learning more about the science and life skills involved in animal and veterinary science projects. Youth may work in teams or individually to accomplish the lesson objectives. Lessons are flexible, providing adaptations for various locations, ages and audiences. (4-h animal evaluation, 4-h beef production & management, 4-h dairy cattle, 4-h goats, 4-h horses & ponies, 4-h sheep production & management, 4-h swine production & management, 4-h veterinary science, animal science
