Food For America

Food For America 2017

On May 16, 2018, the Crestview FFA held Food For America  for the Crestview Elementary third graders. The High School FFA members taught the children about agriculture and how the FFA contributes to agriculture. Food For America is also a time where High School students can increase their leadership skills and communication skills by being a group leader or a station leader. The chapter split the 3rd graders into eight groups which rotated between stations that were 12 minutes long. There were eight stations where kids could learn all about agriculture.

One of the stations was the greenhouse, where 3rd graders got to pick and plant a flower that they could take home. Another station was the classroom, where 3rd graders watched parodies of songs that they have heard but with a twist teaching them about agriculture, while watching the videos, kids could color either a pig, sheep, or tractor which they glued to a popsicle stick that they could put in their plant. Kids then went to the ag shop where they learned about welding and two FFA members showed them how to weld. Next, kids went on a ride in a wagon with a tractor pulling them around the High School. Then children got a chance to show their skill by playing camp games that FFA members had learned at FFA camp. Some FFA members brought their own tractors to show and teach the 3rd graders about safety. And finally the chapter had a petting-zoo that had a rabbit, goats, sheep, feeder calf, pony, and pigs to show kids what some of the animals are they can take through FFA.
