MONROE - With the 4-H slogan, "Learn by Doing," the Explore 4-H program reached out into the community to not only help more youth learn about 4-H but also to help spark an excitement for learning that is driven by kids' own interests, curiosities and hands-on experiences.

In each of the four lessons, taught by UW Extension summer intern Lukas Wymer, youth got to experience how in 4-H youth learn life skills all while exploring something new. Lessons included: making new friends by showing common interests with a coat of arms, scientific inquiry into what it takes to make the strongest bubbles, sending thank-you cards to local protectors as a way of giving back and using an edible color wheel to inspire creativity.

A total of 37 youth from two local child care centers participated in Explore 4-H.

Youth can join 4-H as a Cloverbud from kindergarten through second grade and as a regular member in grades three through 13.

For more information about 4-H or to join a club, contact Ellen Andrews, Green County's 4-H youth development educator, at 608-328-9440.
