Members of Nash County Farm Bureau donate science teaching kits to elementary students
Members of Nash County Farm Bureau recently donated science teaching kits to elementary students in Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools. Marie Joyner (right) and Dorothy Fisher (center) met with Ella Batts, Executive Director of Elementary Education, to deliver "Photosynthesis Promenade" kits for use by third grade students throughout the school system.

The kits contain comprehensive sets of lesson plans related to plant science. The lessons are activity based and hands-on in nature. All activities are based on competencies referenced in the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. The lessons culminate with a square dance activity during which students take on the roles of carbon dioxide, water, sunlight and chlorophyll. As they dance through the steps of the promenade, students transform into sugar to nourish the plant and oxygen to be returned to the atmosphere.

According to Marie Joyner, "Nash County Farm Bureau is happy to provide this valuable learning tool to our schools so that students can learn in meaningful ways the concepts and skills that will prepare them for successful lives as adults. Understanding natural processes helps students understand more about the sources of our food and fiber and the necessity for an appreciation of those who work to provide them for us."

Development of the Photosynthesis Promenade kit was made possible through a Monsanto grant to North Carolina Farm Bureau Ag in the Classroom.

If you have any questions or need further information, please call Louise Lamm (919) 783-4319 or Ellen Gould (919) 719-7282.
