Texas Farm Bureau Visit

February15

Students had a wonderful time learning all sorts of information about Texas farmers and the crops they grow/raise. Here are some pictures I was able to sneak while students were working on planting their corn, sunflower, and lima bean seeds. Big shout out to Lisa from Texas Farm Bureau for teaching us so much about Texas agriculture!
