On Wednesday, October 18th, three Section 18 FFA Officers and our Illinois FFA State Vice President traveled to Armstrong High School to do chapter visits. They attended two of the classes (Ag Science & Intro to Ag) where they had the students participate in a lockbox challenge. A lockbox challenge is a team challenge where they must answer clues in order to figure out the combinations for each lock. The students seemed to really enjoy this activity and the competition of beating the other teams! Every student worked hard and well with one another. After they had completed the challenge, the officers talked about having goals in life, sharing some of their own, as well as the different types of goals (short-term, mid-term and long term). They had the students write down one goal for each type, getting them to reflect on their lives now and what they would like their lives to become.
Big thanks to Illinois FFA for providing such fun activities!
