This guide is designed to help first through third grade youth develop life skills. This is done through experiential (active) learning activities related to animal agriculture. In other words, youth learn skills that help them get through life as well as specific information about animals.

4-H Skills for Life Animal Science Series;
This guide is one of over 40 separate pieces developed by teams of Extension Service educators, volunteers, youth, professional writers and artists from the 12 states of the North Central Region. With the exception of "Exploring Farm Animals," all the other materials in the "Skills for Life" series are arranged in sets of four books dealing with eleven animal projects. Each set has three youth guides that were developed three levels of expertise -
beginner, intermediate and advanced. The fourth guide in each set is a group activity guide like this one.
