Students in CASE Animal Science began Unit 2 which investigated the classification of animals. Several activities and projects allowed students to explore the scientific classification of a chosen animal that they will use for their Producer's Management Guide, which is a year-long project that will be completed piece by piece throughout the school year. Another project included creating a dichotomous key to classify 10 breeds of livestock--quite a challenge, but the students stepped up and completed the task with precision and accuracy.

And what would a week be without wrangling some sheep and alpacas for a petting zoo at a football game? With the help of some dedicated FFA members, CV FFA hosted a farm animal education area as part of CV THON's tailgate before the home football game. Sadie the sheep enjoyed her change of scenery while being transported to the event!
