4th Grade Farm Tour- Part 1

The 4th graders from Locust Grove Elementary School visited Bob and Missy Chambers' farm in Mine Run last week.  The 4th graders went through 6 stations and learned about area and perimeter, soybeans and corn, watersheds, dairy cows and beef cows and even milk Clover the cow, how to grow a hamburger, and Virginia Regions and products.  Then, they did a group station and learned about farm equipment and made grain art with corn, soybeans, oats, and wheat.
