Bee Station

On September 28th-29th, sixth graders from all of Yadkin County’s Public Elementary Schools got to participate in the Sixth Grade Environmental Field Day hosted by Yadkin County 4-H and N.C. Cooperative Extension, Yadkin County Center. We had this event in order to give students a hands-on and up-close learning experience with what they are learning about in school this year regarding the environment. For sixth grade, based on the K-12 Standards, Curriculum and Instruction for Science, students are supposed to learn about the “Earth Systems, Structures and Processes,” “Structures and Functions of Living Organisms,” and “Ecosystems.” This field day was centered on delivering valuable information to sixth-grade students regarding the topics that they will be studying throughout the school year.


Recycling Station

At this event, students got to participate in stations that focused on a wide range of environmental-based topics. The eight stations that were held at this event included recycling, bees, wildlife, soils, plants, insects, photosynthesis/forestry, and a healthy snack station. The students rotated through the stations with their teachers and listened, interacted, and asked questions of each presenter. The stations were taught by Cooperative Extension Staff, Forestry Services, Yadkin County Beekeepers Association, NC Wildlife Commission, Farm Service Agency, and 4-H Volunteers. These station presenters used hands-on and interactive teaching methods to give students a memorable learning experience about the environment.
