Cornell Cooperative Extension in Fulton and Montgomery Counties is offering lessons to summer youth programming sites in Fulton and Montgomery counties, including libraries and town youth recreation programs.
Each 45- to 60-minute lesson is geared for youths ages 5 to 12.
There needs to be a minimum of five youth participants to schedule a lesson and a maximum of 25 youth can be accommodated for each lesson, a news release said. There is a limit of one lesson topic per programming site.
The lesson topics for the summer of 2012 include What's on Your Plate? and Are You Energy Smart at Home? Youth participants in the nutrition lesson will learn about the importance of eating food from all five food groups and making healthy choices. In the energy conservation lesson, youths will learn about energy use at home, how to make wise energy decisions and how to protect the environment.
Summer youth program coordinators may schedule one of the lessons for July 2 through Aug. 17 by contacting Extension Educator Linda Wegner no later than June 25 at 673-5525, Ext. 114, or email@example.com.
