Vaught Visits Acorn Elementary

As a part of the thematic unit, Traveling Arkansas, Carla Vaught, Polk County Extension Agent, visited the 1st and 2nd grade Acorn Elementary classes to promote Agricultural Awareness. The students learned about the top three agriculture products produced in each county by looking at a map of Arkansas. They learned that the top three agriculture commodities in Polk County are poultry, beef, and swine.  Students then made an imaginary pizza using commodities from across the state.  The students had fun and learned a lot about where our food comes from. Vaught left the students with the booklet “Good things from Arkansas” to take home and share with their families.
