Excerpt from One Hundred Lessons in Agriculture: With Practical Problems The preparation of this book is an effort to combine in convenient form the discussions, directions for laboratory and field exercises, te-book work, and farm arithmetic, which the author has found most practical and helpful in teaching elementary agriculture in rural schools. It has been the aim of the author to select from the vast field of agricultural kwledge and practice such subject-matter, materials, and methods as the teacher in the one-room country school, in the grammar grades of a graded school, or in the beginning years of a high school, may find easily practical, within the range of the pupil's understanding, and full of profitable interest and educational value. It is a text-book and manual combined for the purpose of leading away from the usual text-book method of teaching to the method of first-hand contact with the real things of agriculture. The fields, the pastures, the groves, the orchards, and the gardens, are the real text-books, -this book is only a friendly guide-post. If the work is t conducted by means of real things, the educational value is lost, and the information given t permanently retained. Many of the lessons are followed by a set of practical farm problems. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
