4-H Clover Awareness Teaching Guide.
Rutherford, Barbara; Leach, Jennifer
The purpose of this teaching guide is to introduce children in grades 1-4 and their parents to the 4-H program without the long-term commitment of the traditional 4-H club. The 4-H Clover Awareness Program was designed as an after-school program; however, it could be used in other settings such as a day camp. In addition to introducing children to 4-H, program objectives include teaching participants about teamwork and cooperation and improving their self-esteem. The program consists of four 2-hour sessions that teach young people about computers, natural resources (fishing), Spanish, safety, and nutrition. This guide includes: (1) a basic program outline; (2) information on program implementation; (3) suggestions for recruiting and training volunteers; (4) information on the learning abilities, social behavior, and personal development of children ages 6-10 and teacher implications; (5) suggestions for recruiting participants; and (6) detailed descriptions of the program sessions including needed materials, equipment, and facilities. Each session consists of food preparation (snacks), games, physical activities, cultural awareness, and "hands-on" activities. Also included are a program evaluation form and sample letters to parents and volunteers. (LP)
