Water safety

Last October, when he was filling out his interest form for 4-H projects, Spark signed up for the safety area. All of the projects in 4-H are very open ended, topics and how the kids actually do the project have unlimited possibilities hampered only by their imagination. In the area of safety, any safety issue can be chosen from kitchen to chain saw or anywhere in between. Spark chose water safety, which he decided on after taking his swimming classes this winter where pool safety was a hot topic. At the third grade level it would be hard to have enough information for a whole poster, so we expanded it to include boat and lake safety as well. He was must have really been listening in class because he knew a lot of about pool safety as well as how to be safe in the water. He does listen even when it doesn't always look like it!
