A goat visits 4-H Club

By Marissa Eccles, Jasmine Erick, Ari Herrell and Parker Sanchez

The 4-H Club works on projects and community service around Clinton.

When they are not working on projects or community service, the 4-H members bring animals or objects associated with their projects from home.

Sixth-grader Alli McKamey brought her Nigerian dwarf goat named “Kisses” to share with her club members.

We can’t wait to see what other animals they bring and projects they accomplish.

Hawk scientists

study sand

By Marissa Eccles, Jasmine Erick, Ari Herrell and Parker Sanchez

Turns out there’s a lot more to sand than we might think.

This week, eight-grade students worked hard on a lab in science about sand.

Students examined sand through microscopes and learned what the different materials that make up the sand mean.

They also learned how to tell how old the sand is and if it was volcanic or not by looking at the colors of the rock in the sand.

Until next week...
