Even though most schools just got classes started, many Nebraska elementary students are already going on field trips - to the State Fair.
Students from schools all over Nebraska came to the fair to be a part of Nebraska's Largest Classroom.
Hands on activities teach kids about science and Nebraska agriculture, letting them see and touch the crops that become everyday foods.
With many kids being several generations removed from the family farm, educators say students can learn a lot from a day at the fair.
"[They're] able to see animals, interact with some of the displays, learn a little bit more about where their food comes from, what's healthy to eat, experience 4-H too, we're always going to promote 4-H and work for them to expand some of their learning beyond the regular classroom," says 4-H Youth Development Extension Specialist Michelle Krehbiel.
The fair invites both public school and home school students to be a part of the self-guided tour. Around 2,000 Kindergarten through 6th Graders take part in the two-day event.
