Examining Growth Hormones in Beef


September 13, 2019


The Examining Growth Hormones in Beef lesson is designed to add a visual component to written words. Participants will learn about consumers’ concern about growth hormones used in beef production and then read an article about the issue. After reading the article, participants will share facts from it and interpret their understanding of the information by answering a series of questions. Canning jars filled with varying numbers of candies will help provide a visual component to aid in reading comprehension.



After completing this activity, participants will be able to interpret data and prepare appropriate responses to common food production misconceptions.
