Cherokee County 4-H loves to partner with Cherokee County teachers and schools to bring 4-H School Enrichment programs to the classroom. 4-H School Enrichment is a sequence of learning experiences for groups of youth, in cooperation with school officials during school hours to support the school curriculum. We have many 4-H school enrichment programs that we can offer local teachers to enhance their classroom learning opportunities in the true 4-H hands-on “learn by doing”  approach.

We provide materials and lessons for the classroom teachers. We train the teachers to use the curriculum so they can provide lessons to their students without a 4-H volunteer in their classrooms. We also have 4-H volunteers that go into the classrooms and provide 7-9 week programs to the classrooms, like our 1st grade bee curriculum.
Here are some of our 4-H curriculum resources that Cherokee County 4-H has provided to our classrooms so far this year including some that are currently being done in the classrooms.

Currently we have eight classrooms across three elementary schools participating in the “Hatching Classroom Projects” in their 2nd grade classrooms. We also have 4 classrooms participating in the 2nd grade “Winged Wonders” curriculum. And we have 5 classrooms participating in the 1st grade “The Busy World of Bees.”
