Old Mc'Woodstone had a farm, E-I-E-I-O!

Woodstone Elementary School celebrated the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo this year by inviting the students to participate in creating their own farm projects. After studying the various animals on a farm, each student was able to choose what animal they wanted to present: horses, cattle, pigs, poultry (chickens or turkeys), or sheep.  

Their projects consisted of a farm animal diorama and a research paper that counted as a science grade.  All animals and structures on the diorama had to be hand crafted and include only one animal from the categories.  Woodstone administration then conducted a blind judging of all the dioramas.   It was difficult as the students were so creative using anything from milk jugs to cotton balls, golf balls to cotton swabs. 

There was a first, second and third place winner in each category for each class, including a grand champion winner overall for each category.  The results day was fun as the students were allowed to wear western clothing in honor of the “Stock Show” day at school and Audrey Garcia, principal at the campus, was on hand to pass out awards and capture some memorable photos.
