4-H Consumer Grain Record Sheet. Turn in with your project.
The purpose of this project is to study and experiment with a particular grain each year. The ripened seed or fruits of cultivated grasses, grains, and rice are the world’s most important staple foods. Grains are wholesome, delicious, and nourishing. More and more variety in grains is available in grocery stores, health food stores, and specialty grocers. Try something new – try a grain you haven’t tasted before! Study a different grain each year.
This project is divided into a Junior (Grade 3-7) and Senior (Grade 8-12) Division.
In the Junior Division, you may study Corn, Oats, Rice, Rye, Sorghum, Soybeans, Sunflowers, or Wheat.
In the Senior Division, you may study Amaranth, Barley, Buckwheat (kasha), Bulgur, Couscous, Millet, or Quinoa.
