The SLOCounty AgEducation Committee made videos from our many adventures in educating the kids in our county. Check them out!
During an AgVenture demonstration, the kids learned the basics of milking a cow. Click on link below to see the fun.
Working Dogs, Wool, Planting:
Gary Williams shows how a working dog can be used to move cattle. Wool is spun on a spinning wheel so that the kids can see the sheep with their wool and then how a piece of clothing can be made from their fiber. Kids have the opportunity to plant their own fertilizer trial, applying various rates to plants to see the results.
Churning up some fun teaching kids how butter is made. How much milk does it take to make butter? Watch the video to find out.
Learning About Our Produce:
Students discover how their vegetables are grown from vegetable transplants to a mature product. Kids use their imaginations to plant their own transplant so they can take their own Romaine lettuce transplant home and grow it themselves!
If you have a 4th grader this year, be sure to join in the fun at the Great AgVenture.
