Students from the Miami East FFA Chapter had the tables turned for a day when they became teachers at Miami East Elementary School on Friday, April 15. Seven sophomore students enrolled in Agriscience 2 were trained in Project WILD earlier in April and then prepared half hour lessons to educate first graders about wildlife.
The goal of Project WILD is to assist learners of any age in developing the awareness, knowledge, skills, and commitment to result in informed decisions, responsible behavior, and constructive actions concerning wildlife and the environment upon which all life depends. Linda Raterman of the Miami County Soil and Water Conservation District was responsible for the training and lesson development the FFA members went through.
Corrine Melvin and Sarah Pyers played “Animal Charades” to teach about domesticated and wild animals with Mrs. Demmit’s class.
“Quick Frozen Critters” was a fast, freeze tag game to help learn about predators and prey.
