John Deere tractor pulls eighth-grade float
Posted by Green Fun Store on 9/20/2010
The float made by the class is an annual project and was featured in the Good Old Days Festival parade, according to a report from the Voice News. The theme for 2010 was St. Augustine School - Harvesting Great Crops since 1934.
Students created corn stalks that featured their pictures, which were placed on top of the float. This will be the school's 77th graduating class.
"They also decorated seed bags with their kindergarten pictures as well," the paper said.
Farm-related projects are often featured at schools, especially those located in rural areas. Students may take part in a local chapter of the FFA or 4H, which provides education tied to farming.
County extension offices also present similar services, and can be used by both children and adults who have questions about farming or science in general. These organizations are tied to state universities and rely on their resources when providing for the public.
