February 4 H Cloverbud Meeting

For our February Cloverbud meeting, we had a presentation from Arkansas Game and Fish.  The same woman has come to our club for the last several years and presented different programs to us and has done a wonderful job with the children.  She speaks and teaches on their level and always has skulls, furs, feathers, and other cool things for the children to look at.  We have done a program on Arkansas Wildlife, Bears, and last night's was on Wild Turkeys.  She started out asking the children about different vocabulary relating to turkeys.  Then she read a book full of information, stopping to ask questions as she went through.  Then they had an opportunity to strut around the room like turkeys and practice different turkey calls.  Then we "dressed" Alex like a turkey using different things (like sunglasses for good vision) to show different attributes that turkeys have.  We got to sing a turkey song, and examine all the furs of turkey predators.  It was a very interesting and educational meeting.  Next month, we will be doing a meeting on bugs.
