Clover Kids program begins its new 4-H year ...

The Clover Kids program in Waukon has kicked off the new 4-H year, with 52 youth enrolled in either the Saturday Clover Kids or After School Clover Kids program. This year's program participants started their new year making their own stress reliever balls out of a balloon and water beads. The main activity was learning about how the Earth’s plates move by using frosting and graham crackers. The graham crackers represented the Earth’s plates and youth learned four different ways they can move. Depending on the movement, volcanoes, mountains or earthquakes occur.  Afterwards, youth worked in groups to build their own volcano out of play dough (such as pictured at right). Using vinegar and baking soda they were able to make their volcanoes erupt. For more information about 4-H and upcoming activities, contact Becky Rea at the Allamakee County Extension and Outreach Office at 563-568-6345 or http://www.extension.iastate.edu/allamakee/.
