YOUNGER MEMBERS - Cloverbuds & Explorers
Check out the WI State 4-H website for more information and activity plans: https://fyi.extension.wisc.edu/wi4hprojects/younger-members/cloverbuds/
The 4-H Cloverbud project is designed specifically for children in grades Kindergarten through 2nd grade. 4-H Cloverbud programs are developmentally appropriate, activity-focused and built on cooperative learning. The primary difference between a 4-H Cloverbud activity and a 4-H Project area is that the member engages in varied activities with focus on developing a specific skill or concept utilized in completing the activity, rather than focusing on a long-term planned course of study in a specific subject area.
Participation, safety, personal development, learning and fun are the highest priorities for the Cloverbud project.
Check out the WI State 4-H website for more information: https://fyi.extension.wisc.edu/wi4hprojects/younger-members/exploring/
The 4-H Explorer project is designed for younger members either in 3rd grade or 4th grade if it is their first year in 4-H and weren’t in 4-H during 3rd grade.
