2015 Ag Literacy Day

 

During Ag Literacy week Ms. Harris' first grade class celebrated in a variety of ways. They read the AFBF Ag book of the year, "The Apple Orchard Riddle." The class used the Ag Magazine to go with the book. They also had career day where Rick Griebenow from EKU's Farm came and brought a dairy calf for the students to learn about. Griebenow also taught them about the uses of corn. Greg Harris brought a calf to school and taught the students about the types of feed cows eat and how to care for livestock. Each Friday there is an agriculture lesson to help students learn more about one of the largest industries in America. After Spring Break, they will begin the process of having baby chick eggs and caring for them over a few weeks.

 

Ms. Harris reads the Ag magazine to her first grade class.

Comment Column: The Family Farm, A Classroom Like No Other

I’m blessed to have grown up on our family farm in Clark County. It taught me the benefits of hard work as I learned through hands-on activities that took place every day. I discovered how to grow crops, care for animals, and to be a good steward of the land. It was a classroom like no other and my parents set an example that I carry with me daily.
