If It Moves Its Biology

 Story image 1_0

To start out the new school year, the sophomores that are taking Biology have been learning about all the different biomes on the Earth. A biome is a large naturally occurring community of flora and fauna occupying a major habitat, e.g., forest or tundra. As well studying the organisms in those biomes, biology students have been working with different food chains and food webs to better understand how the energy flows throughout every environment. In the month of September, MPS biology students traveled to North Platte for the Youth Science Field Day. On that day Mr. Kinnison and the sophomores learned about all the different careers in agriculture ranging from growing crops and raising cattle to flying remote control UAVs and being an Ag Economist.

Throughout the day the class rotated through various stations representing different jobs and meanings in Agriculture. Students learned how to suture a horse’s injuries and artificially inseminate a cow. In addition they learned what kind of grasses cows like to eat and studied the different part of a flower. One highlight of the day was seeing how UAVs operate when being flown through a field. But according to the sophomores their favorite part of the day was getting to stick their hand inside the Rumen of a cow!
