A popular snack food helped students at Blue Ridge Elementary School learn all about pollination thanks to a visit from Amanda Johnson with the WVU Extension Service. Johnson showed Danielle Chinnock’s second-grade students how bees help flowers grow. “The students pretended to be bees, drinking nectar (water) and then taking pollen (Cheeto dust) to paper flowers,” Chinnock said. The WVU Extension Service’s youth education programs promote responsibility, teamwork and overall youth development while cultivating a promising future.
