Bill Seybold, a wildlife biologist from the Lewiston office of Idaho Fish and Game, came to Prairie High School last week.  He presented a math lesson to two of Krystal Ellis’ math classes on scoring deer antlers.  He also gave them a brief biology lesson.  Did you know there are five different species of deer in Idaho?  These include white-tail and mule deer, moose, elk and caribou (which live up on the Idaho/Canada border).  Each student had their own set of antlers, and spent the class period measuring the antlers and calculating the score according to Boone and Crocket standards.  Mr. Seybold also presented to Ryan Hasselstrom’s careers class about different careers at Idaho Fish and Game.

Nutritionist Tiffany Schaeffer came to a 4-H project meeting for Making the Most of Me. She visited with the girls of the Keuterville Livestock and Greencreek Active Workers 4-H Clubs. She spoke with the girls on the food pyramid, healthy eating habits, how you feel about yourself and how to apply it to your life. It was a time of interaction and learning from each other. The girls learned how to properly introduce themselves to others and much more. The meeting ended with fresh fruit to get us through the rest of our day. Thank you Ms. Schaeffer for encouraging our girls to live a healthy lifestyle. Photo by Shari Chaffee. Click on the photo for a larger view.
