Biosecurity Learning Modules
The biosecurity learning modules series is appropriate for use by grade school to high school teachers, 4-H, FFA and other agricultural instructors.
Learners are encouraged to learn on their own too. The modules are easy to follow, and include many activities that help with remembering the information.
The series is comprised of six modules:
SCRUB: Science Creates Real Understanding of Biosecurity
The SCRUB curriculum and activities link hands-on learning with science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education. The SCRUB modules incorporate science into fun activities to engage youth in grades 6 - 12 with an existing interest in animal science.
SCRUB fills an important need to teach youth about biosecurity, because their animals may be at risk every time they travel to new places and mingle with other animals during shows and exhibitions.
The SCRUB activities are a great complement for the Biosecurity Learning Modules on this website.
A curriculum instructor guide with all of the activities is available as a downloadable PDF document.
Grime Scene Biosecurity Tabletop Exercise
Grime Scene is a problem-based learning biosecurity tabletop exercise for students of all ages.
Three fictional farms with different management approaches are presented to small, facilitated groups (three to eight people) sitting around a table.
The groups are asked to discuss a series of events that occurred on the farms resulting in livestock becoming sick.
This exercise was created to emphasize the importance of basic biosecurity principles and protocols. The link to learn more will take you to the EDEN website.
