On Wednesday, November 5th, 2014, Bear Branch 4th graders enjoyed a field trip to Magnolia High School Ag Barn for Ag Day. The students had an opportunity to recognize and celebrate contributions Texas makes to agriculture in our everyday lives. Agriculture provides almost everything we wear, use and eat daily; however, few students truly understood these contributions. The students were exposed to many activities including interacting with live animals such as goats, chickens, and cows. They also had the opportunity to see a cotton gin, a cow produce milk, and learn how bee hives work . The high school students were very knowledgeable, and our 4th graders were great participants, eager to hear about these animals and products. Thank you to Montgomery County Farm Bureau in conjunction with Magnolia High School FFA for hosting the wonderful event.
We hope to have some future farmers in our 4th grade group!
Here are some comments from our students regarding the field trip.
