Government…it’s on everyone’s mind these days. There is no better time to teach our Cloverbuds about our Great State of Ohio.
Did you know that Ohio’s Secretary of State, Frank LaRose, has an Ohio Activity Book available for download from his website? This activity book is FREE and features information about the Ohio Burgee (flag), the Seal and Motto, State Flower, State Bird, and more! There are coloring pages, word searches, crossword puzzles, and other puzzles and games. What a wonderful way to learn more about our Buckeye State! As a 4-H Cloverbud Volunteer, you can have your Cloverbuds download the book, assign them a page or two to complete with their adult, and then have a virtual Zoom meeting with the Cloverbuds to discuss what they learned. You could also have easy trivia questions ready for them to answer. Click here to download the Ohio Activity Book.
The Ohio Activity Book pairs nicely with one of our Click It, Print It, Do It! activities. Check out the instructions for making the Seal of Ohio using dried beans and seeds. Click here to download the lesson plan.
For an easy virtual meeting, have your Cloverbuds download the activity book, ask them to complete (along with their adult’s help) a few pages, and then have a Zoom to discuss what they learned. Next, have them download the instructions for the Seal of Ohio activity and ask them to have their adult help them to complete that activity before the next meeting. In reality, the activity book has many pages and could be used for several lessons and meetings.
Teach our Cloverbuds about Ohio History and learn fun facts about the Buckeye State in the process. And, who knows? Someday maybe one of our Cloverbuds will be elected Governor of the Buckeye State!
