Educators & 4-H Friends,
Welcome to the Clover Adventures Youth Development program. Clover Adventures is an early childhood education program designed to foster growth and development of youth between the ages of 5 and 8 years.

The Clover Adventures program is organized into 12 lessons to be taught individually or in a group. Each lesson offers a variety of educational activities for the youth to expand their knowledge about their community and 4-H. The lessons are easily adapted for monthly clover meetings and can be used for a period of three years with the same group of clovers. The educator may select a different group of suggested activities each year so that returning youth will have a different experience than the prior year, and still learn valuable information from the lesson.
Included in the resource are online resources and links which may be valuable to you as an educator when preparing your activities. The links include curricula and websites, which support the lessons adapted from Project Learning Tree, Junior Master Gardeners, and State Clover Curriculums.

I hope you find the program and resources useful in your program and classroom. The possibilities are endless, and there is a GREAT Clover Adventure awaiting you!!!
