Equine education

Third grade students at Walker Elementary School in Bedford Park recently learned about horses from Cook County Young Leader, Kristen Yunker, pictured, and her passion for barrel racing during a virtual learning session. The virtual visit was part of Cook County Farm Bureau’s Adopt A Classroom partnership with Walker Elementary and included video clips of Yunker caring for horses on her farm and barrel racing. It also was supplemented with Ag In The Classroom materials and activities. (Photo courtesy of Diane Merrion, Cook County Farm Bureau ag literacy coordinator)
