4-H in Your Polk County Backyard
During the NC stay-at-home order of 2020, Polk County 4-H found itself with plenty of knowledge and explorations to share, but no 4-Hers to share them with! So, we worked hard to figure out a creative way to help families use the time they had together getting outside and hands-on with nature right in their backyards.
The result of that was a series of quests that aren’t limited to the shut-down period. Families can use these investigations of soil, plants, insects, reptiles, and amphibians anytime to discover the natural world just outside their back door.
Each downloadable issue includes:
- Information specifically geared to the flora, fauna, and critters right here in our Thermal Belt region
- Videos to help 4-Hers visualize important learning concepts
- Hands-on activities and crafts that bring science to life right before your eyes
- Printable resources that kids and teens can take outside with them to log their observations
