Agricultural engineers are very important in our everyday lives. They are biology experts and focus much of their work on living systems concerning plants and animals. Our focus in first grade will be on pollination, learning about relationships between insects and plants both in helpful and harmful ways.
As we learn more about agricultural engineering, first graders are learning the important connection between insects and plants. If a plant does not have a pollinator that matches its structure, then there is a chance that the plant won't get pollinated. We're spending time making observations of all the pollinators with plastic models.
