dc.description.abstractMany students find it difficult to comprehend information and retain knowledge from regular classroom instruction alone. In addition, many students cannot remain focused on a certain task for an entire class period. By incorporating experiential learning activities into the lesson plans, it is easier for students to recognize concepts being taught and remain focused longer by switching class activities from regular instruction to experiential learning. Using the work of David Kolb as the underlying foundation, it was determined that experiential learning is beneficial in agriculture education. The Experiential Learning Theory was used as the framework for this project to guide activities for increasing understanding of the content in Veterinary Science.en
