Cedaredge Future Farmers of America (FFA) members prepared six programs, one for each grade level, then visited the students at Cedaredge Elementary School for fun in the classroom during FFA Week earlier this month.
Finger puppets were worn by kindergartners as they learned about farm animals.
First graders rode stick horses while participating in a rodeo. Second graders created hamburgers of Play- Doh while learning the origin of some of the food they eat. Third graders, when finished with their session, had a better understanding of a life cycle, in this case, from a seed to the apple.
Making butter, while shaking a jar of cream, had fourth graders doing a "butter shake dance". Putting together "dirt pies" with gummie worms made for a lesson about the layers found in soil, followed by an "eat treat" for fifth graders.blog comments powered by Disqus
