Food For America

Food For America 2016

On Wednesday, May 11th, the Crestview FFA held their annual Food For America educational workshop day. On this day, Crestview’s third grade class was welcomed by numerous FFA members for a morning of flower planting, agricultural word searches, interactive games, tractor and welding demonstrations, and a petting zoo. 88 elementary kids were led in groups, rotating around between the six stations. Food For America is used to not only expose younger generations to the benefits of  being involved in FFA, but also for current members to gain and improve on their leadership skills. Station leaders were given the responsibility of creating a lesson plan that was both fun and educational to fill each 15 minute session. The third graders learned about the opportunities available with the Crestview FFA Livestock Lab as well as plant a flower from the chapters greenhouse to take home. They then had the opportunity to learn about student brought tractors, including both a John Deere 7310 and 9300. Inside the shop, students got to watch as members enrolled in the Power Equipment class demonstrated their welding skills. Finally, in the chapters classroom, station leaders led the third graders in a word find, coloring, and agricultural pictionary. The day was rewarding and educational for both younger students and the current FFA members.
