The third annual Elementary Agriculture Day was held on March 17th, 2017 for Kindergarten, first and second graders at Royal Valley Elementary School and put on by the Royal Valley FFA Chapter. Elementary students rotated between three stations put on my the FFA chapter. The three stations were Greenhouse, Farm animals and machinery, and a Pizza lesson in the classroom. In the greenhouse, students learned about what the different parts of a plant provide for the plant, including the flower, leaf, stem, and roots. In addition, the students planted sunflowers that they will take home with them at the end of the year. With the farm animals, the students learned about bucket calves, horses, sheep, chickens, and pigs. The students also learned about swathers, semi's, cattle pots, stock trailers, and tractors. In the classroom, the students learned how it takes agriculture to make a pizza. Students got to make a life size pizza, and read the book 'The Vegetables We Eat.'
Liz Kirby remarked, "The kids were really excited about their sunflowers, and I had fun teaching them about the greenhouse."
Alyssa Gooderl also commented, "I had fun teaching the kids about the cows. They really enjoyed being around them!"
Here are a couple videos of the students learning and walking around the Greenhouse.
