Arkansas 4-H Afterschool Curriculum
Our user-friendly curriculum is designed to promote the Arkansas’ 4-H Afterschool program and provide 5 hours of training to Arkansas’ Afterschool Program Providers. The curriculum aligns with the Common Core State Standards and Arkansas Curriculum Frameworks. This year we are focusing our attention on K-5th grade lessons. Our goal is to provide our afterschool youth with an early introduction to 4-H and gradually grow their 4-H Afterschool program into a 4-H Afterschool Club!
Each of the 20+ lessons has a 4-H “Learn by Doing” perspective. Youth will learn through the hands-on experiential learning process. Part of this learning process includes allowing adequate time to process how each lesson applies to his/her life; this is one of the key components to making this a quality 4-H experience.
