First AGstravaganza is a Success!
Franklin County High School Agriculture Education and FFA students hosted the First Annual AGstravaganza outreach event on Friday, May 13th at Franklin County High School for FCCSC students during the school day, and the public from 4-6 PM. Agriculture Education students prepared presentations and planned the event for their final project in their Agriculture Education courses. Ag Ed students were responsible for: planning to differentiate instruction for grades K-3, 4-8, and 9-12, budgeting supplies and materials, event planning and logistics, securing resources and volunteers, advertising and communications, and will be reviewing the event to plan and improve for next year.
A wide variety of educational topics were presented, ranging from individual livestock species to farm machinery, crops to animal physiology. All of the activities were interactive and hands-on so students could gain an active learning experience. Over 750 students from grades K-12 participated in the event throughout the day!
Franklin County FFA parents and supporters were also a huge part of the day’s success. The Agriculture Education and FFA students plan to continue this event each spring, and hope to include even more educational opportunities in future events.
