 Howdy Campers! Are you ready to travel from the farm to your fork? 

 Welcome partners to week six of Oklahoma 4-H STEMist Virtual Camps! This week we focus on Farm to Fork. We have previously learned about livestock and crops and now it's time to put it all together in one fun filled barrel. Starting Wednesday, July 22nd, join us as we discuss agriculture literacy, the importance of food and the technologies farmers use to keep their farms running.  We will continue to learn about where our food comes from on Thursday, July 23rd by following the process of food production, using chickens! Bring your game face on Thursday because we will also play Match the Food with its Source. Then on Friday, July 24th you won't want to miss out on discovering the qualities your meat should have and how to pick out the perfect steak for any ranch hand.

 Each day of camp we will provide you with an activity sheet with clear instructions of exactly what to do. Be sure to click the link at the bottom of your activity sheets to find a Microsoft form to fill out for all five activities. Also, log on to flipgrid.com and use the code provided at the bottom of the activity sheets to show us how your experiments went. Finally, remember that there will be three YouTube Videos to go along with every day of Farm to Fork Camp! You will be able to find these on the Oklahoma 4-H YouTube page!

Accessibility to these activities and instructional videos will be available online. Camp lessons can be completed any time during the camp week. Both Flipgrid and Zoom are downloadable mobile applications. 

 We will host a follow up conference via Zoom at 2:00 p.m. CST Friday, July 24th regarding Farm to Fork Camp. 

 Feel free to contact us with any questions, email us at ok4hsteam@okstate.edu We look forward to learning with you this summer!
