CONNECT WITH 4-H
Welcome to The Incredible Pig
Youth will enjoy naming breeds, learning swine body parts, judging market hogs, exploring a digestive system, examining a healthy pig, identifying pork cuts, practice fitting & showing & many other activities. Grades 3-5.
Are you ready to learn more about pigs?
Many of the things you'll learn are skills you'll use in your life, such as:
Swine 1 Project Guidelines
Swine 1 Achievement Program
While you are having fun doing the activities, you'll also be completing Level 1 of the Swine Achievement Program. There are three levels of this program. One is included in each of the swine project activity guides. This program will help you set goals, record your successes and be recognized for your good work.
Your Project Helper
On your team supporting you and making learning more fun is your project helper. This person may be a parent, swine breeder, project leader or advisor, a neighbor or an older friend who knows about pigs. The choice is yours. As you do the activities, you'll discuss with your helper what you did and the questions in the "Talk it Over" part of each activity. Sometimes your helper will need to work with you to identify resources, including people, organizations, events, magazines and books necessary to complete an activity. Once you have successfully completed each activity, your helper will date and initial your achievement program.
