Fourth and fifth grade students out for summer vacation recently continued learning through an agriculture mobile classroom at R.T. Jones Library in Canton.

The Georgia Farm Bureau’s mobile classroom, a unique STEM-based educational experience, visited 45 students at the library. Children participated in eight interactive stations, including engineering a poultry house and raising chickens, practicing peanut planting and following a plant from greenhouse to garden, to their own backyards. They also learned about a cow’s life cycle, how to recognize Georgia grown products, forestry and more. Children also took a career interest survey and watched interactive videos from agriculture professionals.
