Excerpt from Elementary School Agriculture: A Teacher's Manual, to Accompany Hilgard and Osterhouts Agriculture for Schools of the Pacific Slope
It is the purpose of this little manual to help the ambitious teacher, who is not afraid of work, to begin the teaching of Agriculture. The writers believe that agriculture should be introduced in all elementary schools, but in making this statement it seems necessary to explain brieﬂy what we mean by Elementary School Agriculture and how we think it should be introduced.
Agriculture, in the mind of the careless thinker, is sometimes synonymous with farming. Now farming is a noble and, fortunately, an increasingly attractive occupation, but the term Agriculture has a vastly bigger content than the term farming. Agriculture is both a science and an art. It is, in fact, a great composite of the funda mental sciences and, during the progress of civilization, has come to include a long list of elementary arts and technical industries. Even in the high school we find only a few of the fundamental sciences that go to make up the great science of Agriculture and fewer still of the elementary arts. Far be it from the elementary school to teach science as such. There is less danger of this than ever before. The mission of nature study has been fulfilled in part. It is now generally believed that natural history as a. School subject can be made a powerful educative agent. On the other hand, the manual arts employed in Agriculture comprise a most valuable sort of practical training for the young.
