The Paulding Agriculture Education program receives a grant from the Paulding Area
Foundation for their new 1 st Grade Agriculture Adventures Program. High School students in the
livestock class are partnering with the 1 st grade students at Paulding Elementary to teach the
youth about livestock. This new program is called Ag Adventures and will focus on teaching the
students about livestock raised in Paulding County. This program will begin by talking to 1 st
graders about swine. The high school students would go down to the 1st-grade classrooms and
do a presentation, a fun activity and read the students a book about swine. This will allow our
high school students to interact with younger students and share their knowledge learned in
the classroom with them through hands-on activities. This program will align with the 1st-grade
science standards that focus on mammals, animal needs and their habitats. After the fun
activities and reading each 1st-grade student would receive their very own copy of the book to
take home and share their livestock knowledge with their families. The goal of this project is for
the elementary students to learn more about Paulding County’s agriculture and livestock industry
while enhancing their literacy through the gift of a book. Paulding Ag department is very
excited about this program and appreciate the support of the Paulding Area Foundation to help
our student advocate for agriculture and teach younger generations about the importance of
