On Oct. 13, the 5K classes at Southland Academy visited the Jimmy Carter Boyhood Farm in the Archery community near Plains. The students were given a tour around the farm and were able to see what President Carter’s life was like as a child growing up in Plains. While there, they built a scarecrow, visited the boyhood home, made jack-o-lantern faces, listened to a story about farm life, and sorted beans by size and color. They also played games that would have been played when Carter was a young child their age during the Depression. After leaving the farm, the kids went to the Plains Welcome Center and enjoyed lunch.
