K-6 Students have Fun Time at State Fair Continued…
The thing that was most memorable to these students was the world’s
biggest pair of overalls. Emily Mostek, Faith Heapy, and Katherine
Paitz had the opportunity to be part of a wheat presentation. They
learned about different kinds of flour and about gluten and how it
affected the bread dough. They got to tie pretzels! Lastly, they received
cookies that were made from flour from wheat grown in Nebraska.
Emily commented, “I had fun with helping and learning.”
This group then headed over to the Game and Parks exhibit and shot air
guns and bows, which was the highlight of Katherine Paitz’s day. Next,
they visited the Birthing Pavilion, a building that holds cows, ewes, and
sows giving birth to their young. They then went to the rescued dog
Frisbee show. This show was Ashton Behmerwohld’s favorite thing
about the fair. The BMX Bike Show was next on their agenda,
followed by lunchtime. Afterward, they visited the 4-H Building; there
they saw “lots of samples, lots of good samples,” according to Gavin
Cole. They then returned to the Game & Park Exhibit.
Finally, all the students were bussed back to Litchfield. When asked
how the State Fair was, a couple responses were, “It was awesome!”, “I
loved it!”, and “I wish the State Fair was every day!”
