St. Mary’s Preschool Teacher receives the Iowa Agriculture Literacy Foundation Grant Storm Lake St. Mary’s Preschool teacher, Mrs. Kreutz, has been selected to receive an Agriculture Literacy Foundation Grant. The grant is designed to initiate new projects or expand existing projects that promote agriculture literacy at St. Mary’s Catholic School.

Mrs. Kreutz will be using this grant to integrate agriculture in her classroom by hatching baby farm birds in an incubator. The preschoolers will be educated on the process of hatching eggs by using books and videos, doing creative art projects and using a counting chart to document the number of days until hatching occurs. Mrs. Kreutz looks forward to the opportunity to educate the students on the process it takes for baby chicks to hatch and grow.
