Tracts include Animal Science, Plant Science, Foods and Nutrition and Tractor (riding lawn mower) Driving. Within each of the tracts the subject matter changes on a 4-year rotation. Each rotation is a hands on station with manipulatives that the students are able to show what they know about each subject. This event can be easily adapted to a variety of audiences.
