In the late 1800’s, researchers discovered adults in farming communities did not readily accept new agricultural developments, but found that young people were open to experimenting with new ideas and would share their experiences with adults. In this way, rural youth programs, known as 4-H after 1902, introduced new agriculture technology to communities, which had a profound impact on our nation.
These Riverdale 3rd graders showed me that they are learning lots of new things about different animal habitats and they are becoming chicken experts as they explore these eggs. Thank you to LSU Ag Center for providing the training and materials for this program. Thank you to Mrs. Mancil for agreeing to teach this program in your classroom.
