Olivia Slate, 9, Anna Clair Funderburk, 8, and Abigail Kuntz, 9, all third graders in Melissa Ottaway's class at Shiloh Elementary, enjoy baby chicks during Thursday's Wake Up To Ag Day.

Wake Up To Agriculture Day, a program designed to introduce third-grade students to agriculture, was enjoyed at UCPS high schools throughout the county on Thursday, (April 7, 2011).

Sun Valley High School, for example, had farm equipment and green houses on hand to give students an opportunity to experience how plants are planted and grown.
