Bryan County children learned about earth, water and gardening during a 4-H day camp conducted Thursday.
The children participated in activities that taught them about pollution, the water cycle and plant growth.
They also learned about gardening by making “dirt babies,” which will grow grass hair, planting sunflower seeds in biodegradable planters made from newspaper and making “sprouting gloves” to watch different seeds sprout.
Through games, the participants also learned about the water cycle, which describes the continuous movement of water on, above and below the Earth’s surface. Kool-Aid was used to demonstrate pollution in a lake made from a pool.
The next day camp will be “The Art of Pastry Making” 10 a.m.-2 p.m. June 19 at the Clay Jones Community Building.
