4-H has been busy here in Cherokee County.

Shannon just returned from Raleigh with some new 4-H School Enrichment for our high schools to use next year. Here are some pictures from NCSU Soil Labs where the Soil to Seed Curriculum was taught. The 4-H Agents were learning about run off from construction sights and soil erosion.

We have also been busy at the 4th grade with 4-H Electric. Students were excited when they could light a light bulb with a piece of aluminum foil, a battery, and a flashlight bulb.

Here is Will Johnson at Murphy Elementary posing for a picture with his homemade flashlight.Will Johnson Electric project

Also at Murphy Elementary School, Cherokee County Master Gardener’s have been building a square foot garden and raised bed garden. The 4th grade classes have also assisted with this project.

Here two 4th grade boys are planting radish seeds in one of the square foot boxes.Planting Radish Seeds 4th Grade 2015

Cherokee County 4-H has also been busy with Andrews Elementary School 2nd grade doing 4-H Embryology. We will hopefully have baby chicks in a few weeks!!
