Ann Price, with AG in the Classroom, visited K-8 grade classrooms January 18 at Sunshine Bible Academy. She presented three different topics relative to farming and ranching.
Price did a demonstration with the junior high about how water is absorbed by the different types of soil.
Students in grades 4-6 each made a water cycle, and K-3 students learned about ear tagging of cattle by ranchers. Price presented a large poster to the classes.
The fourth-grade SBA class has been studying plants. They did an experiment mixing yeast, sugar and water in a large pop bottle, which produced carbon dioxide that filled a balloon. They also grew some garden beans.
Fifth and sixth grade students constructed a building, using marshmallows and fetticcinie noodles.
While at the South Dakota Reading Conference last June, Price provided a prize from the organization. The SBA 4-6 grade teacher’s name was drawn for a prize of two books, a cookbook, a little garden project and a poster of the dairy farm.
Her recent visit provided even more scientific information regarding farming, and how it relates to classroom study.
SBA teachers are, K-3, Megan Hall; grades 4-6, Sherry Van Zee; and grades 7 and 8, Sally Donald.
