Hands on learning taking place in Cassville

Wednesday, December 31, 2014
Barry County Conservation Agent Dan VanDerhoef recently visited second-grade students at Cassville Primary School to conduct a program on fur-bearing animals as a class science lesson. The fur program showcased 14 pelts of different animals native to the area including fox, beaver, otter, raccoon, mink and black bear. The brief program is popular among both children and adults and teaches about the animals' natural habitats, diet and fun facts. Students had the opportunity to identify and touch each animal fur, in addition to seeing some skulls of the same animals. Contributed photo
