The 2021 Farm day was my first year to be able to work our school's Farm Day. I was very excited to be able to work with the kids and teach them more about agriculture and get them involved with FFA. I worked with Sydney Hartley and Allie Hundley. Our work station taught kids about what you can do with sheep's wool. The kids loved the activity and had a fun time learning about it. All of the Upperclassmen were very nice and helped me and my group if we had any questions on what to do or how things worked. 

I had the most fun when I was a group leader and got to show some of the younger kids around the different stations. They were shy at first, but when I got to know them more they really showed interest in going to all of the activities that we had to offer. They loved hanging out with the animals and being able to interact with them. When a station was occupied we sat down and played some games until another station opened up. Their favorite game to play was definitely Duck, Duck, Goose. Over all the kids learned a lot about agriculture and still had fun while learning. 

While at Farm Day a local farmer brought farming equipment. This farming equipment allowed the elementary kids to see what is used in the agriculture field, along with proper farm equipment safety. Members of our chapter brought livestock and the elementary kids were able to see livestock they may have not seen before. This allowed the kids to learn about the health and way these livestock animals function. 

Farm Day ran smoothly. The group I was in had no major problems. The chapter had a lot of fun teaching kids and honestly learning a little ourselfs. It helped us understand how as a chapter we can all work together to help each other and our community learn more about FFA.
