Elementary Students Sew Up End-Of-Year Project

Third graders tackled a sewing project with a little help from one of their classmates, some senior citizens and some high school students.

Elementary art teacher Kathy Bailey squealed with excitement when she saw the stack of brightly-colored aprons piled neatly on a table beside a sewing machine. "Look at all these! They are wonderful!" she said holding up one of the aprons and gently putting it over the head of a third-grade student who had just finished sewing.

Pigs, Cows, Bees, Tractors: All Part of Ag Awareness Day

Ag Awareness gave students a chance to get up close to different animals.

How can plants be grown without soil? Where does chocolate milk come from? Why do chickens lay different colored-eggs? Thornapple Kellogg third graders asked and got answers to these questions and many more at the 14th annual Barry County Ag Awareness Day at the Barry County Expo Center.
More than 500 students from Hastings, Delton Kellogg, Thornapple Kellogg and Barry County Christian schools visited different stations set up at the fairgrounds to learn about agriculture and its importance to Barry County and the state.
