Gelatin and Meat Protein -- On the Go Lesson
What is meat? Meat is made up of muscle fiber, connective tissue and fat. Muscle fibers are comprised of protein. Proteins are made up of many chains of amino acids. When you eat meat, the digestive juices in your stomach and intestine break down the meat protein into basic units called amino acids. The amino acids then can be reused to make proteins for your own body. When meat is cooked, a chemical reaction occurs, and the protein is denatured or changed. Use gelatin to explore this concept.

The left side can be used on the outside of the paper bag or box to identify the activity, and the right side can be placed in the package as an instruction sheet.

Iowa 4-H Equitation and Horsemanship Skills Assessment
The Equitation and Horsemanship Skills Assessment Program provides an optional, planned progression of skill development to promote safety, equitation, and horsemanship. The program offers a check-list for youth to be involved and succeed, regardless of their riding style, skill, or ability.

The skills are not western, hunt seat, saddle seat, or contest skills. They are skills for all disciplines, riding styles, and uses. These skills were designed for the purpose of promoting safety and knowledge within the 4-H horse project. The skills will give youth a planned progression of horse handling and riding skills and a solid understanding of and ability in horsemanship.

Mastering proper horsemanship skills before progressing to the next level requires patience, maturity, interest, dedication, and time. Youth can practice skills at home, clinics, demonstrations, meetings, camps, etc. As you work with a horse or pony, you want to work at developing self-discipline, patience, self- reliance, responsibility, and pride of accomplishment. Youth should progress through the levels at their own rate to successfully master the skills.
