Make It and Take It Science Fair

Story by Ellen Park, San Patricio SWCD

A nose is a nose, is a nose�until it is time to PICK YOUR NOSE from the San Patricio SWCD and NRCS exhibit displayed during the Make It and Take It science fair at the Rockport Fulton 4-5 Learning Center. Each student picked a �nose� from a variety of paper cups that had been imprinted with animal noses. The cups held multiple candies and snacks. Posters provided information on backyard, wildlife, rangeland, cropland, wetland and the animal �noses� that live in these habitats. As students grazed on the snacks, they matched each snack to a food the animals would find in their individual habitats.

Students learned that healthy conservation makes for healthy habitats and healthy noses!
