KLB Visionary Agriculture Learner’s Grade 5 (Approved) by F. Muthua, E. Misiko and A. Wachira
KLB Visionary Agriculture Grade 5 Learner’s Book has been developed in line with the requirements of Grade Five Agriculture Competence-Based Curriculum Design. The experiences have been developed in tandem with the thematic and integrated approach that is recommended for learners at this level. The book is generously illustrated to enliven the content, which is steered to follow the curriculum design.
A lot of emphasis has been placed on learning through discovery. Through the several activities, learners are led to discover knowledge on their own.
The book has employed a learner-centered approach where all experiences are centred on the learner’s interests, knowledge, and application to real-life situations. Several parallels are drawn from the learner’s immediate environment. Several activities are included in the title and learners encouraged to perform them either in pairs or in groups. This approach is aimed at promoting collaboration amongst learners. Every learning area has a home project where the learner is expected to transfer the skills learnt at school to home. This is aimed at enhancing community service learning. Digital literacy has been given great attention as learners search for information from the Internet and watch relevant video clips. This makes learning interesting and widens sources of information.
Financial literacy is adequately addressed. Learners are encouraged and trained to sell surplus produce such as seedlings and vegetables.
