The Mohawk FFA recently held a Kiddy Barnyard event at the school for students in preschool through third grade on May 16. FFA members brought in variety of animals to share with the young students, including a cow and calf, a goat, two sheep, a pig, a horse, a rabbit, two peacocks, two chickens, five ducks, and a cat and five kittens. The FFA members taught the students all about the animals and allowed the younger children to pet them. FFA members also drove their tractors to school that day and gave the younger students an opportunity to climb in the cabs; there were six tractors present. Students could sit on all the tractors and learn about each of them. They also planted sunflower seeds and made homemade butter. Educational activities such as these teach the next generation of citizens about the importance of agriculture.
