News Release

Midland FFA Teach Midland Third Grade

Midland third grade students were introduced to good bugs and bad bugs by FFA students, Clayton Blunier and Brenda Beaver through the interactive skit, “The Community Beneath My Feet”. Playing the part of a new home owner, Brenda was very distraught over the discovery of weeds in her lawn. As the expert in integrated pest management, Clayton guided her to a responsible solution that did not harm the environment. Following the skit, each student made a game that contained more bug information. The lesson concluded with the high school students leading the third grade through action songs.  FFA members, Matthew Connolly and Hannah Meffert assisted with the program. This event was coordinated by University of Illinois Extension Marshall Putnam Ag in the Classroom. The Mission of University of Illinois Extension is to provide practical education you can trust to help people, businesses and communities solve problems, develop skills and build a better future.
