Youth "Travel" to India & Vietnam as part of International Travel 4-H Club

The International Travel 4-H Club traveled virtually to India and Vietnam on March 23 as part of their monthly club meeting. Youth studied about both countries prior to the meeting, identified and made a dish to talk about and played a game of Kahoot to test their knowledge of these two beautiful countries. Check out the padlet on India and Vietnam to see some of the dishes they made. In April, they are traveling virtually to New Zealand. Interested or have questions?
