Hands-on activities for at-home exploring
My Plate and the Planet
My Plate and the Planet is an exciting new initiative that encourages youth ages 8 to 16 to explore the food we eat and the world around us through hands-on activities – while having some 4-H fun in your own home.
Families and 4-H clubs can register to receive the My Plate and the Planet Activity Kit, which has everything you need to grow your own salad garden at home! Plus, it’s free!
Registration to get your own kit starts Dec. 14, 2020, and ends Jan 31, 2020. Kits ship and resources will be available in mid-February.
Find Your 4-H Wings
What do loons, bats and owls have in common? You can discover them all with Find Your 4-H Wings! With these Activity Books, you’ll explore native birds and bats in your own backyard and how you can protect them.
Steeped in Soil
Get your hands dirty as you learn the nitty-gritty about soils, explore healthy soils with hands-on activities, and participate in science experiments from Steeped in Soil.
Proud to Bee a 4-H’er
Explore the vital role pollinator bees play in creating a healthy ecosystem and a sustainable food supply. The Proud to Bee a 4-H’er kit will guide you through learning about the amazing and fascinating work of Canada’s pollinators while getting outside to enjoy nature!
Coming this winter!
Keep an eye out for our next new initiative on soil and climate action, coming to clubs and families in early 2021. Snow days will never be the same when you can spend time exploring how healthy soils are climate change game-changers.
