2021 Online Explore 4-H Project

Welcome to the information for the Online Explore 4-H Project! We are excited you are here to be part of this experience!

4-H Ontario has heard the feedback from 2020 and have enhanced the Online Explore 4-H Project experience by hosting this experience using Google Classrooms. Through the Google Classroom you will be able to see project work, submit your completed activity options and have questions answered through your experience.

To ensure you are able to access the full experience via the Google Classroom, you will need to enter an email address that is either a Gmail account or an email address tied to a Google Account. If you don’t have this, you are still able to complete the project, when you sign up we will provide you with further instructions. If you have questions about this or the Google Classroom, please reach out to Autumn at digitalprogram@4-Hontario.ca. Please note, school email addresses may pose a challenge in connecting to this 4-H virtual experience due to their security settings. Please use a different email address to register for this experience.

For 2021, there are 30 different activity topics for you to choose from (see the list to the left)! These activities are based on 4-H Ontario Project Resources and will give you the opportunity to learn about a lot of different topics 4-H has to offer. To receive club completion, you will be required to submit activity work for 10 of the activity options. This year there is even a Digging Deeper section included! The Digging Deeper section does not have to be completed in order for the activity to be marked done. They are activities designed for senior members or anyone that wants to do/learn more!
