4-H Demonstrations

April 4-HOur 4-H topic this month was Demonstrations or Interactive Exhibits.  Each student did a great job of explaining each step of their topic.  You would be very surprised at how many steps it takes to open a bottle of water to drink or just to tie your shoes.  Can you explain to someone how to make tea who has never made it before or how to play an instrument?  Do you know how to make compost out of a bottle or sew on a button?  How about grooming a horse or making a lava lamp?  After listening to these demonstrations, you really felt you could go out and do them!  Great Job, SHS!!!
