The Southland Academy 5K classes visited the boyhood home of former President Jimmy Carter in Plains this month. Students enjoyed a tour which gave them a glimpse of what life was like for Carter when he was growing up. Students participated in a wide variety of activities on the farm. They built a scarecrow, used stamps made out of vegetables to make an art piece, and used a vintage grinder to grind corn. Students also took a tour of Carter’s boyhood home and learned what life was like working on a farm back in the early 1900s. Shown are students in Robin Brock’s 5K class.
